Roasted Red Peppers with Goat Cheese & Fresh Basil

Roasted Red Pepper Tray

I’m notorious for walking into my kitchen with a recipe in mind and prepare something completely different. This was the case when I had the idea of making roasted red pepper bruschetta as an early evening snack. In the end, the cutting board of ingredients was so beautiful; I never reached the “bruschetta” part. I couldn’t help but pour a glass of wine, pop in a movie and dive in.

Consider making your own variation of this platter the next time you need a rustic appetizer for your dinner party. Thinly sliced prosciutto would be a wonderful complimentary addition to the flavors. Or try toasting the bread to for a bit of crunch.
