For the recipe
Drain the mozzarella so that it loses excess water.
Preheat the oven to 180 ºC.
Wash and dry the tomatoes and cut the larger ones in half.
Place the tomatoes on a baking tray covered with baking paper, season generously with oil, salt and pepper and distribute the chopped herbs. Place the garlic on the baking sheet and bake in the oven for about 40 minutes.
Roast the slices of bread under the oven grill at full power for a few minutes.
Toast the pine nuts in a pan without adding fat, until golden brown.
Lay two slices of mozzarella on each bruschetta and complete with roasted tomatoes and toasted pine nuts. Decorate with a drizzle of raw oil, a pinch of pepper, a few leaves of basil and a little balsamic vinegar from our excellence line.
