Rarely I have I had such a mix of flavours that compliment one another as well as this recipe does!
Recently I have been on a bit of a mission to create my portfolio and recruiting a few people to help me achieve this goal. Last week my father made this recipe when he had a guest over for dinner. He sat this heavily plated bruschetta dish down onto the table and before I had even taken my first bite I knew I wanted him to make it for my cause. It smelt and looked amazing!
This recipe comes from the (freebie) Coles magazine you can pick up at your local Coles supermarket – and boasts a cool $2.70 per serve!
