I recently discovered Trader Giotto’s Fresh Bruschetta Sauce at Trader Joe’s (refrigerator), and immediately fell in love.

Trader Joe's Fresh Bruschetta Sauce

I’ve been dreaming of what I could make with it ever since, and when I saw these gorgeous Adagio baby eggplants at Costco, I knew the two would be fantastic together.

These beautiful fruits have tender skin, and small, soft seeds; no need to salt them because they aren’t bitter.

Just layer slices of eggplant with bruschetta sauce and parmesan cheese and bake!

What is Bruschetta? (bro͝oˈsketə)

Bruschetta is traditionally grilled Italian bread topped with olive oil and typically with garlic or tomatoes. Trader Joe’s Fresh Bruschetta Sauce is the topping for the toast! But it can also be used as a pasta sauce, or incorporated in a recipe.

  1. I love the Trader Joe’s Bruschetta. What a yummy and simple recipe. You are going to make us all look great in the kitchen! What about an Olive spread recipe? Until the next recipe. Thanks.

  2. Looved it and I used some leftover mozzarella also. I bought some very small eggplants and only had 1 or 2 slices without the rind. Can I use them also?

    1. Absolutely! 🙂 I’m sure it’s even delish with mozzarella! I was trying to keep the points as low as possible so didn’t add any, but I’m sure hubby would love it with the extra cheesy goodness! 🙂

  3. I just made this and it is the bomb! Trader Joe was out of the fresh bruschetta and I used the jar one which was also low everything: 2 TBSP … 25 calories / 1.5 G Fat / 3 Carbs / 1 G Protein

    Did you figure out the Points Value for this recipe ?

    1. I just bought the jar bruschetta – I’ll try it next time! With fresh bruschetta it’s 3 PointsPlus per serving. I’ll add that under the recipe too so it’s easier to see. My site is undergoing a HUGE makeover – soon recipes will be easier to print and will include nutritionals and points in the printable area. Can’t wait!!!
