Bruchetta with sundried tomatoes, bell peppers and marinara sauce

S & I had been to the movie “Julie & Julia” last week. Its a well-knitted emotional food blogging story and I am sure every food blogger around will feel connected to it. The story revolves around a young woman Julie Powell who decides to cook 524 recipes from Julia Child’s classic cook book “Mastering the art of French Cooking” in one year and she blogs about it. She ends up gaining national attention and book deals from publishers. Its a lovely feel good movie. I really enjoyed this movie and would recommend it for my fellow bloggers.
Hey girls! do watch this cute chick flick today 🙂
My husband gave an “Aww! wow!” involuntary reaction in one of the scene where Julie serves a colourful slice of bread; baked with cheese & peppers on it. I kinda had a glimpse of it and wanted to reproduce it in my kitchen. So here is my version of that with garlic bread, marinara sauce, peppers & cheese.
It is a super simple dish and can be fixed quite easily. The crispy bread blended scrumptiously well with the perfectly baked peppers and sun dried tomatoes.The cheesy crust made every bite zestful and the mild flavor of oregano takes us to the land of Tuscany.S really loved it and I really loved his expressions while he tasted them. Wow! they were priceless to me.

Fresh garlic bread (Store bought)
2 tbs marinara sauce
1 tbs mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup red bell peppers
1/2 cup yellow bell peppers
1 tbs sun-dried tomato
1 tbs oregano
Preheat the oven to 375’c.
Slice the garlic bread to about 1cm thickness. Place them neatly over a baking sheet leaving about 1mm gap between the slices and bake them for 20mins.
Once done, remove it from the oven and flip it over.
Start by spreading 1-2 tsp marinara sauce on it and them some cheese over it. Now evenly place the peppers and sun-dried tomatoes.
Sprinkle little oregano on top.
Bake them for another 15mins and serve hot.
