Red Pepper Bruscetta

Like bruschetta as an appetizer or afternoon snack? Then you'll love this popular sandwich, prepared with all the traditional Italian flavors and blended with pantry-handy, canned red bell peppers.

I love to make bruscetta because it is a great appetizer, especially for entertaining guests. It goes well with any Italian dish, it is super easy to fix, and it tastes wonderful. Serve it as appetizer, a colorful side dish, or just a snack.

IngredientsRed Pepper Bruschetta

1 loaf (1lb) unsliced Italian whole wheat bread or white bread

¼ cup chopped fresh basil

1 tsp Italian seasoning

2 tbsp. fresh parsley, minced or 1 tbsp. dry parsley

6 plum tomatoes, sliced

1 cup part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded

2 ounces provolone cheese, shredded

Directions

2. In a skillet, sauté 2 garlic cloves in 2 tablespoons oil until tender. Brush over the bread.
