Super easy crowd pleaser...bruschetta

If any of you are like me, you have tomatoes coming out your ears right now. This is one dish that has been a huge hit at my house. I first had Bruschetta while serving a mission in Italy. Aside from the gelato and pizza it was my most favorite dish. When I got home from my mission I made it for almost every get together. It was always one of the first things to disappear from the plate. It is still one of my favorite things and I always order it when I have the chance at my favorite Italian restaraunts. So, with some of your extra tomatoes, try this out.

6-8 Roma Tomatoes, chopped
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
Fresh Basil, washed and finely chopped
Ciabatta bread
Olive oil
salt, to taste

Slice bread into 3/4 inch slices. Brush with olive oil and broil on high until lightly toasted. Meanwhile, place chopped tomatoes, garlic, basil, salt and a little olive oil in a bowl. Top toasted bread with tomatoes. Buon Apettito!

Hopefully I am back to blogging. I am finally feeling better and we're getting settled in our new house. I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things very soon. Hopefully we'll have some great ideas for fall and halloween coming up soon.

Aaaah it looks divine! Thanks for the recipe. Reminds me of the recent Meryl Streep movie, "Julie and Julia" when Julie made this same delicious dish.
