"Bruschetta is one of the simplest and most universally crowd-pleasing appetizers you can make. Here it is grilled and flavored with the best quality olive oil you can find and smeared with a hint of garlic, topped with ricotta, arugula, and prosciutto. It is humble but fresher and the more fun cousin of the pizza. Not only is it to be served as an app. but it is also to be enjoyed as a snack or as part of a light lunch."
