"This Italian appetizer made of bread, fresh spinach, and some other goodies is great for serving at parties. A French baguette is a long, narrow loaf of French bread. I like to garnish the bruschetta with more basil."

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Arrange the bread slices on a non-stick cookie sheet.
  2. In an electric blender or food processor combine the spinach, Parmesan, almonds, basil, garlic, salt and pepper. Blend until a paste forms. Pulse in 2 tablespoons olive oil; continue pulsing until the mixture is the consistency of soft butter.
  3. In a small mixing bowl combine chopped tomatoes, green onion and 1 tablespoon olive oil; stir.
  4. Bake the bread slices for 5 minutes or until crisp and brown.
  5. Arrange toast on a serving platter. Spread each piece of toast with a thin layer of the blended pesto, then top with the tomato mixture.

Wonderful recipe. I made mine in the blender this time but I believe it will be easier in the food processor (a little "gummy" to begin in the blender). Definitely will make again!!!

5 stars for taste, 4 stars for the ingredient list, 4.5 overall. First of all, I halved the almonds because I ran out. I started using my blender but it couldn't do the job so I had to get out...

This was a great hit at the bridal shower I took it to. Quick and easy to make.

Great recipe. I made a whole tray. My son brought his friends over for lunch and these were gone in 2 minutes. 16 thumbs up :)

This recipe went over very well. I like my bruschetta warm so my only altercations were adding mozzarella cheese in the tomato mix ( i used diced can of tomatoes too) and then putting it in the ...
