Roasted Cherry Tomato and Ricotta Crostini

Roasted Cherry Tomato and Ricotta Crostini | Le Marche and Food | Scoop.it

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. 

Ingredients

  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 1 loaf ciabatta bread, sliced into ½" thick slices
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 15 oz ricotta cheese
  • 12 fresh basil leaves

When the ingredients matter: Crostini e Bruschette

When the ingredients matter: Crostini e Bruschette | Le Marche and Food | Scoop.it

The word crostini means little toasts, whereas bruschetta has as its origin bruscare, to char or roast.  I’ve always thought the difference to be in the bread used. When I make crostini, I use a baguette, thinly sliced on the diagonal. For bruschette, I use a thicker slice taken from a loaf of Italian bread. I toast both before piling on the fixin’s and sometimes pop them back into the oven afterward. It really does depend on what’s being used to top each off. And speaking of the fixin’s, you can use pretty much anything you like. Just stick with fresh ingredients and you won’t go wrong.
