Slice the baguette into rounds.
Place them on a baking sheet and drizzle lightly with Colavita Olive Oil.
Toast in your oven’s broiler for about 2 minutes per side, watching closely so the toasts don’t burn.
Broil them in batches until all the rounds are toasted.
Place a dollop of ricotta cheese on top of the toasted crostini.
Add 2 Colavita Sundried tomatoes on top of the cheese.
Drizzle with Colavita Balsamic Glaze and top with a sprinkle of freshly chopped basil.
Heat up your oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the prosciutto on the baking sheet, making sure not to overlap the slices.
Bake for 10 minutes, or until crispy. Remove from oven and drizzle with about 1 tbsp maple syrup. It’s best to add the syrup while the prosciutto is still hot.
Allow the prosciutto to cool slightly. Once you can hold it, cut the meat into pieces that will fit on top of your toast - about 2-3” long.
Place a piece of prosciutto on your toasted crostini.
Add slices of pear on top, about 2.
Place the shavings of Pecorino cheese (about 3) on top of the pears.
Sprinkle on the chopped, fresh Rosemary.
Heat your oven to 350°F.
Place the grapes on a parchment lined baking sheet and drizzle them with 1 tbsp Colavita Olive Oil and ¼ tsp salt.

Finish with a drizzle of Colavita White Balsamic Vinegar.
