Bruschetta: Bruschetta with Roasted Peppers

posted by Ivanka 06-15-98 3:30 PM


4 yellow peppers
4 red peppers
freshly ground black pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 c. loosely packed basil leaves, cut into thin strips
1/2 c. extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra
1 loaf Italian or any good crusty bread
1 lb. fresh robiola or mild goat cheese

Roast the peppers on a grill or under the broiler until charred on all sides; turn them as they roast to ensure even cooking.

Peel the peppers while they are still hot, remove the seeds, and cut into fine strips.

Toss the peppers with salt, pepper, garlic, basil, and olive oil.

Slice the bread into 1/2 inch slices. You can grill or toast the slices at this point if you wish.

Top each slice with the pepper mixture, including the dressing, and some crumbled cheese. Drizzle with more olive oil and serve.

Makes 8 servings.
