  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 ½ cups grape or cherry tomatoes halved
  • Kosher salt and black pepper
  • 1 package (10.5 oz) Gorton’s Garlic Butter Shrimp Scampi
  • 4 tablespoons Neufchatel or cream cheese
  • 12 slices baguette toasted
  • 4 tablespoons pesto store bought or homemade
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts toasted
  • Optional garnish: chopped fresh basil


  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add the oil.  Add the tomatoes and season them with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes soften and start to burst, 6-8 minutes.  Transfer the tomatoes to a plate and wipe the skillet clean. 
  • Cook the Gorton’s Garlic Butter Shrimp Scampi in the skillet according to package directions.  Remove from heat. 
  • To assemble the bruschetta, spread about a teaspoon of Neufchatel cheese on each slice of toasted bread and spoon a teaspoon pesto on top.  Top with a few tomatoes and 1 or 2 shrimp.  Garnish with toasted pine nuts and fresh basil.  Serve immediately.
