One of the best things you can do when you get your hands on some good fresh Italian bread is make a simple bruschetta with basil and tomatoes.
Used different ingredients. add finlely chopped red onion to the tomato, and a splash of olive oil and balsmaic vinegar, also crumbled fetta if desired - 06 Apr 2010
Used different ingredients. Excellent! I sprinkled some mozzarela cheese on top and cooked them on the BBQ! Delicious! - 29 Sep 2008
Altered ingredient amounts. I thought it was pretty bland, so the next time, i doubled the basil, chopped up 2 garlic cloves and added it to the tomato mixture, then finished it off with some grated mozzarella on top. It got a much better reception from my husband the second time. - 29 Sep 2008
