Tuesday, April 18, 2006 DE-LICIOUS Tomato & Basil Bruschetta

This recipe came from Cucina Amore

6 roma tomatoes, diced
2 cloves
garlic, peeled & chopped
3 tablespoons
olive oil
2 1/4 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons chopped
fresh basil
1/2 teaspoon
kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon
fresh cracked pepper
8 slices Italian bread, cut about 1 inch thick (I used panini bread)
2 tablespoons grated
parmigiano-reggiano cheese

Whisk together chopped garlic, vinegar, salt, pepper, and basil.
When combined slowly drizzle in oil.
Add tomatoes and let sit for 20 minutes at room temp.
Meanwhile back at the bat cave, toast the bread.
This can be done either in the toaster (if it's got really wide slots) or under the broiler (if using this method watch closely so it doesn't become a brickette).
When the bread is toasted rub each piece, on one side, with the whole garlic pieces.
Place the bread on a cookie sheet and top with tomato mixture.
Sprinkle on a little cheese and broil till the cheese melts

Serve immediately.
