ROASTED VEGETABLE BRUSCHETTA
By Tom Woodcock
Serves: 4 to 5 (3 to 4 pieces per person)
♦ 1 small baguette, sliced into 1/2-inch rounds
♦ 1 tomato on the vine, cubed
♦ 1 roasted red bell pepper, cubed
♦ handful of basil, chopped
♦ 1/2 ball of fresh mozzarella, diced
♦ 3 tbsp olive oil
♦ salt and pepper
Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Assemble the baguette rounds onto a sturdy metal baking pan. Set aside, and combine all of the remaining ingredients together in a large bowl. Place heaping tablespoons of the mixture on top of each round. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the topping is lightly golden. Serve immediately.
