Perky Pancetta Bruschetta

Oh my I have been away for awhile! Sorry about that! I can breathe now that school is out and summer is here!
We have been cooking up a storm at our house. The girls and I made some wonderful bruschetta the other day! We added some fancy new ingredients! 
Check it out!

So here is the deal.........we whipped up some fresh pesto and added a touch of cream to it to soften it up. 
Then we fried up some pancetta! 
I wanted to eat it by itself! 
Chopped up some vine ripe tomatoes, threw them in a bowl and drizzled them with olive oil, sea salt and cracked black pepper. 
Grabbed some nice greens and tossed them in a bowl with some fresh lemon juice and olive oil.
 Snatched some goat cheese from the frig. 
Grabbed a loaf of french bread and 
started to assemble these puppies!
First layer - goat cheese
layer 2      - creamy pesto
layer 3      - toms
layer 4      - crispy pancetta
layer 5      - fresh greens

Spread them out on a baking tray and broil on high for about 2 minutes or until sides of bread are crispy!
You could heat these puppies up on the grill as well!
Then you add a smoky flavor to it......
See ya later!
Mama is off to eat some pancetta!
I like to say it PANCETTA

Thank you Graphics Fairy
for the perky mama pic!
