Hearts On Fire “Bruschetta”

how to make pretty valentines day bruschetta
I made these Bruschetta on Valentine’s Day & this recipe has been sitting in my draft. I know I'm really late posting this but then again, everyday is V-Day as long as there’s love in your heart, isn't it?

I’d fun playing with food that day. Making the hearty Brushetta was as easy as ABC. Difficult part was picking out the letters from a bag of Alphabet pastas. It was like searching for needles in a haystack. LOL!

Following my post on Flirting With Food On Valentine’s Day, here’s my 1st course with Hearts On Fire “Bruschetta”.

The colour of the bruschetta didn’t turn out as good, as I was using Wholemeal bread. So I’d suggest using White bread if looks is your priority :) The darker toast is actually a “remake” of my Crispy Anchovy Garlic Toast, so I’m only posting the recipe for the Brushetta, using the most common basic ingredient - Tomato.

(Serves 3)
Ingredients for Brushetta:
3 slices of Bread
1 Tomato (big)
3 tbsp Mozarella Cheese
1 Japanese seaweed strip
8 Alphabet pastas (LOVE)
½ tsp Olive oil
1 tsp Vinegrette
1 tsp Parsley flakes


  1. Cook pasta according to instructions on packet & set aside.
  2. Using a heart-shaped mould, cut out shapes from bread. Do not dispose remaining bread. Use a smaller mould to carve out shapes for croutons to go with the Wild Mushroom Soup.
  3. Wash tomato & dice. Mix with seasonings & parsley. Spread on bread & top with cheese.

  5. Sent it to the griller & toast till golden brown.
  6. Cut seaweed to the size that you want & place it carefully on the bruchetta. Wet the sides so you can tuck them in neatly. Decorate with pasta letters & surprise your beloved one!

What about serving it with Wild Mushroom Soup with Heart-Shaped Croutons?

To make croutons, cut out shape using mould. Toast them lightly & spread butter. Quickly place the side with butter on a plate of parsley flakes & press to stick. Turn them over & place them on top of your soup. Enjoy!
