wow this was yummy! I like to try different variations of bruschetta. This one is so easy. I roasted a red bell pepper in the oven for 20 minutes. And I made the recipe for 6 pieces and used the small pepper. I didn't measure the ingredients. I didn't see why I'd add the olive oil so I omitted it. It was delicious like that. And now I'm seeing I made a big mistake. I used freshly grated parmesan instead of shaved. I didn't read carefully. But it was so good. Thanks Katanashrp :) Made for PRMR tag game
This was fantastic! One of the best recipes I've tried in a long time. I bought fresh-made pesto in the deli section of my store, and used a jar of roasted red peppers and fresh parmesan. I liked the fruitiness the olive oil added too! We had meant to have this as an appetizer, but it was so good my son and I couldn't stop eating it, and I ended up afterwards putting most of our dinner away as leftovers since the two of us finished the whole loaf. ;) It was that good. A five-star recipe for sure!!
