Crostini (which, simply translated from Italian means little toasts—appropriate, right?) are quite possibly the perfect appetizer. While bruschetta might be the one you’re most familiar with, there are so many ways to top a crostini. This version, which includes roasted cherry tomatoes, is simple, satisfying and perfect for entertaining. Roasting the tomatoes brings out their sweetness. Pair that with creamy ricotta and crunchy garlic toast for an irresistible bite.
