Bruschetta with Crostini or Grilled Polenta
Cristina loves the versatility of bruschetta: "If you need an easy appetizer, this tomato treat is always a crowd-pleaser! I always keep prepared polenta in a tube in the fridge to grill. It comes in handy when I need something quick. I won't hesitate to also serve this to company at the start of a meal. It's simply delicious!"
