Bruschetta with Capsicum and cottage cheese - step by step recipe

I love bruschetta esp with cherry tomatoes. However my kids are not big fan of tomatoes. So I never thought of trying at home. But I had some surprise visitor for a evening tea time. I wanted to try something without deep fry. I had tri color capsicum in the fridge. I always love the combo of capsicum and cheese. So I decided to try it out. Everyone loved it. I made this for second time within a week. It is perfect healthy starter
