SERVINGS: 16 CALORIES: 176 CAL

Celebrate Peach season with this simple and delicious recipe. I don't know about you but it's not summer until I've stopped on the side of the road and bought a basket of peaches from a local farmer. I need to bite right into it and make a mess out of whatever I'm wearing. I put peaches in my salad, eat them as is and peach cobbler with ice cream, seriously my mouth is watering right now. This recipe I love and so will you.


INGREDIENTS:

16 baguette slices

2 tablespoons olive oil

4 ounces thinly sliced pancetta

1 cup whole milk ricotta

1 tablespoon honey

2 large peaches thinly sliced

1/4 cup balsamic glaze

1/4 cup thinly sliced basil


INSTRUCTIONS:

Lightly brush both sides of the bread with olive oil and set aside. Preheat grill. Grill the bread for 1-2 minutes on each side until golden and crispy. Transfer to a platter and set aside. In a small skillet, cook the pancetta over medium heat for 3-4 minutes or until it begins to crisp. Flip the pancetta over and continue cooking until crispy.  Transfer to a plate lined with a paper towel and allow to cool. In a small bowl, whisk together the ricotta and honey. Spread one 1 tablespoon ricotta mixture onto a baguette slice. Repeat with remaining bread. Top each piece of bread with a few slices of peaches and divide the pancetta evenly among the crostini.  Drizzle the crostini with the balsamic glaze and sprinkle with basil. Serve immediately.
