Crostini is an Italian appetizer made out of small slices of grilled or toasted bread topped with an array of choices such as cheeses, meats, fruits, vegetables and herbs. Today we will be making some ciabatta based crostini topped with ricotta, peach and bacon, an excellent combination of contrasting flavours which enhances every element on this humble grilled bread. Usually you can serve this as an appetizer or as a side with pasta.
