What’s better than crusty bread topped with tangy and savory homemade bruschetta that boasts flavors from peppers, onion, garlic and tomatoes? Well, nothing except for a generous helping of Sargento® Shredded Mozzarella - Traditional Cut melted on top to elevate all of the wonderful flavors and add creamy warmth to this awesome appetizer.
