Bruschetta al Pomodoro
Bruschetta (pronounced brusketta) is the simplest and one of the most appetizing meals. It can be topped with all sorts of ingredients from olives to truffles, or mushrooms. Here we show you a Tuscan Classic: Bruschetta topped with Fresh Tomatoes and basil.
Distribute the tomato uniformly on the bread slices and serve warm.
* 4 medium tomatoes, finely diced
* basil leaves
* extra-virgin olive oil
* salt and pepper
* 4 slices of thick-crusted Italian country bread approximately 3/8 inch (1 cm) thick
* 1 clove of garlic, peeled
Mix the tomato, basil, extra-virgin olive oil, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Preheat an oven, broiler, toaster, or light up a charcoal fire. Grill the bread on both sides until golden brown.
Lightly rub the garlic on the surface of the bread.
