Roasted Tomato, Basil and Ricotta Bruschetta

I really love appetisers and bruschetta is one of my favourites. All related to Italy makes my heart sing, I cannot help myself. Carbs are life. This combination of slow-roasted tomatoes, silky whipped ricotta, aromatic pesto genovese and toasted garlicky peace of bread is just divine.

Slow roasted tomatoes are easy to make. Just season them with salt and pepper, drizzle with some olive oil and roast on 180 deg C for about 30 minutes.



A key to get a good ricotta spread couldn’t be more simple, but I have discovered it just recently. All you need to do is whip it like you would do with a whipping cream. It gets so nice and creamy! Season with salt and pepper.


Toast your bread slices to crisp them up a bit. While warm, rub with garlic. It will give it a wonderful aroma.Next, spread the ricotta. Add a tiny bit of pesto Genovese. Store bought. Sorry not sorry.

Arrange tomatoes on top, add a couple of fresh basil leaves and drizzle all together with some olive oil and freshly cracked pepper! Serve with some prosciutto. Enjoy!
