A simple homemade pesto is spread on sliced ciabatta, then topped with sliced tomato and mozzarella, before being grilled to perfection. Serve as finger food or an appetiser.
Yummy, I used a baguette. I would have given it 5 stars if you instructed to lightly toast the bread first. (The pesto/tomatoes make it soggy. Pesto was fantastic, I used basil and parsley mixed and added a little salt and pepper. I have plenty pesto left over for tomorrows dinner which I will toss with pasta and shrimp alfredo. FYI - pine nuts are also called pignoli nuts and you can find them near your olives, pickles etc. or in your pasta sauce section in your supermarket. I toasted in small non skillet by itself for a minute or two. - 15 May 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
These are so freaken good! My husband and kids love these so much that I have to double the batch each time I make them. I agree with the last review, you can get away with less olive oil. - 23 Aug 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Awesome! My fiance doesn't prefer basil but loves this! Always the first to go at parties! Use fresh moz and parm...it makes a difference! Also, use baguette slices lightly toasted on both sides to avoid soggines. Watch pines nutss , as they burn very easily!Thanks for the great recipe! - 08 Oct 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
