I love all things Italian. The country, the language, and the people, but most importantly, I love the food...
I could go on forever. It's so delicious. It's so...simple. It's food in it's most pure form, and you can't get more pure than Bruschetta.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Cut crusty, Italian bread into 1/2 inch slices. Drizzle a little EVOO and rub garlic on the slices.
Toast in oven for about fifteen minutes.
While bread is in oven, seed and cut tomatoes into small chunks. Slice basil into thin strips. In a small bowl combine EVOO, tomatoes, basil, salt and pepper.
Remove bread from oven and top with tomato and basil mixture.
