Really yummy. Had no basil so made it without any. Used Asiago sheese to sprinkle on top.

The term bruschetta refers specifically to toasted bread, rubbed with garlic and drizzled with good olive's basically Italian Toasted Garlic Bread. This version is actually the classic Italian starter Bruschetta al Pomodoro or Toasted Bread with Tomatoes. Bruschetta is my absolute favorite appetizer during the summer or whenever I can get great tasting, fresh, ripe tomatoes. There is just nothing better than the magic of fresh tomatoes, garlic, basil and olive oil on top of toasted bread. We made this for a great, light lunch served with cottage cheese on the side.
