Recipe: Tomato Bruschetta with Burrata Cheese and Basil Pesto

This tomato bruschetta with burrata cheese and basil pesto, is an upgrade from our usual brushetta recipe. Tomato, mozzarella and basil is a classic Italian combination, so it's no surprise this worked out beautifully. As I mentioned previously, burrata is a fresh Italian cheese made from mozzarella and cream, so if you can't find burrata easily, you can substitute it with mozzarella.

Enjoy - an easy, delicious antipasto. Always a hit with our family!
