Italy meets France…on a crostino

Do you remember when I made pesto yesterday?

Well, it is one of my favourite food, so I left over a little amount to make this incredibly simple and delicious crostino.

All you need is bread, french goat cheese (chèvre) and pesto!

Slice the bread, put into the oven for a couple of minutes, take it out of the oven and spread pesto on it.

Add some cheese (not to much because it has a strong flavor)

Put int the oven again….1 minute…ready!!!

This is a great appetizer to delight your guests or a great anti-stress ….So good to eat while studing 😉


eggplant crostino

I don’t think I mentioned that I’m a graduate student…

Well, in this period i’m really stressed because of the classes, tests, researchers…

The better way to take a break from books is cooking and then eating something simply, fast and not too hard to digest…

I remembered that i had some eggplant grilled leftover and so it came to my mind a good idea for a snack!!

I love fresh bread, but I dont have time to go to the bakery everyday…so I buy it, cut into slices and put into a ziploc and freeze…so everytime I need it, i just put the slices into the toaster ….believe me it stilll tastes good!

So… I defrosted 1 slice of bread, layed 1 slice of turkey breast on it, then  layed the grilled eggplant on.

I have then cut some parmesan cheese very thiny and put on the top of the crostino. (put the cheese you like most, or the one you have home…)

Now prepare the balsamic vineager sauce:

put about 3 tbsp of balsamic vineager into a sauce pan, bring to boil and add 1 tsp of sugar…mix with a spoon for a couple of minutes…be carefull ’cause it tends to stick up…

ok, now sprinkle the drops of sauce all over it and serve the crostino on a layers of fresh salad….

mmmmmhhhhh so deliciuos 😉
