Balsamic Bruschetta

Italian dinner 004

Next up, Bruschetta!  Oh, how I love the Bruschetta!  I found this version of the recipe on the All Recipes website and it was delicious.  There are other versions out there but this one seemed pretty close to what I was eating in Sicily and I ate a lot of it!

8 Roma or plum tomatoes, diced (about 2 cups of tomatoes)

1/3 cup chopped fresh basil

1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 tablespoon Balsamic vinegar

1 teaspoon olive oil

1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1 loaf French bread, toasted and sliced (check out Costco because I found some great Italian bread there that was perfect for this)

In a bowl, toss together tomatoes, basil, cheese and garlic.  Mix in vinegar, oil, salt and pepper.  Let sit in fridge for 1 – 2 hours before serving to allow flavors to blend.  When ready to serve, place bread slices on a cookie sheet and brush with olive oil.  Place under broiler for 1 – 2 minutes or until bread is just starting to brown and is slightly crispy.  Top with Bruschetta and serve.
