Cooking night with a friend tonight. We made a fab pesto sauce over pasta, and these easy bruschetta. The sweet tomato, sharp balsamic vinegar and savory basil carried enough flavor on its own; providing a healthy and crunchy start to our meal!
2 ripe tomato
3 cloves garlic
handful of fresh basil
Mince garlic and sauté in olive oil. Dice fresh tomatoes and add. Chop fresh basil into desired size and add together with balsamic vinegar to taste. Add dash of pepper or a little salt if desired.
Cut baguette into thin slices and toast for 5 minutes at 425. Remove from oven, turn baguette slices, and top with tomato mixture. Bake for another 2-3 minutes, until bread is crispy on top and the tomato juice is dry. Remove from oven and top with parmesan cheese.
