Tuscan Recipes - No.1 Bruschetta al Pomodoro

Tuscan Recipes - No.1 Bruschetta al Pomodoro

Serves: 12


  • 8 chopped ripe roma (plum) tomatoes
  • 5 leaves of chopped fresh basil
  • 2 cloves of minced garlic
  • 1 pinch of dried oregano
  • 1 dash of crushed red pepper
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 pinch of ground black pepper
  • 2-3 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 loaf of Italian-style (or French) bread, cut into diagonal slices
1.     Combine the tomatoes, basil, garlic, oregano, red pepper, salt, pepper and olive oil in a large bowl. If necessary use more olive oil to coat the entire mixture. Allow it to sit for 10-15 minutes for all the flavours to blend. 
2.     In the meantime, preheat the broiler pan. Arrange the slices of bread in a single layer on a baking sheet, then brown both sides slightly in the oven. Remove the slices from the oven.
3.     Spread the tomato mixture on the still warm toasted bread slices and serve.  - Luxury Italian Cashmere, Bedding & Bath Linen
