Crostini are spread with a homemade spinach, Parmesan and almond pesto, then topped with chopped tomatoes. These are perfect for finger food, appetisers or tray passed hors d'oeuvres.
This was relatively easy to make (and quick cleanup- just my processor)and was a hit at a dinner party. I was a little unsure of how they would be recieved because it did not look like traditional bruschetta, but they are SO much tastier and there were no leftovers. I added some diced mozzarella to the tomato mixture for that complimentary taste. I will definately make these again...One problem though- the recipe made way too much pesto, and i did not even use the requested amount of almonds. Thanks for the recipe, Maryanne. - 12 Jan 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was definitely a big hit at my family gathering. Most said it was the best bruschetta they ever had, and I would have to agree. I recommend purchasing a bag of pre-washed spinach leaves situated at the grocery store next to the bags of salad - more simple that way. - 08 Oct 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Wonderful recipe. I made mine in the blender this time but I believe it will be easier in the food processor (a little "gummy" to begin in the blender). Definitely will make again!!! - 21 Jun 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
