Step 1
Preheat grill to medium. Thread 6 tomatoes onto 4 (10- to 12-inch) skewers. (If using wooden skewers, soak in water for 30 minutes to prevent burning while grilling.)
Preparation: 5 min
Step 3
Rub one side of bread with garlic. Top each bread slice with about 1 tablespoon ricotta cheese. Top with 1 teaspoon pesto. Slide tomatoes off skewers and place 3 tomatoes on each bread slice, smashing tomatoes a little if desired. Sprinkle with pepper. Garnish with basil. Serve immediately.
Preparation: 10 min
Step 2
Grill tomatoes, turning to brown evenly for 5 minutes or until blistered and charred. Grill bread slices for 1 minute on each side or until lightly toasted.
