Bocconcini and Capsicum Bruschetta

A very moreish Italian-style snack.

Serves: 4
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 5 minutes
  • 8 slices thick ciabatta bread or baguette
  • olive oil, for brushing
  • 200g tub cherry bocconcini
  • 200g red capsicum or tomato pesto
  • 16 black kalamata olives
  • basil leaves, for garnish
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Brush bread slices on both sides with olive oil and grill on both sides until golden. Drain bocconcini and tear apart. Spread bruschetta with pesto and top with torn bocconcini, olives and basil leaves. Season with pepper and serve.
