I used cherry tomatoes, you roast them up in a dry pan until they’re nice and brown and burst open! Mix with a little olive oil, basil and salt and pepper. Top on a garlic crostini and that’s it! You can also drizzle with a little balsamic at the end for a nice tangy flavor! Everyone will eat these up!
