When you need to make a last-minute appetizer, you can't go wrong with this easy bruschetta. This is the simplest recipe that you can make with few fresh ingredients. I made this over the week end and both my kids loved it. Try to use a good extra virgin olive oil and some fresh basil leaves.
French bread - 1 loaf (Sliced)
Plum tomatoes - 4 (Finely chopped)
Fresh basil - 5 leaves (Thinly sliced)
Shredded Parmesan cheese - 4 TBSP
Extra Virgin Olive Oil - 1/4 cup
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Pepper - 1/4 tsp
In a bowl, mix all the ingredients except the bread. Let it stand for 15 minutes. Before serving, toast the bread for 5 minutes or until it's crispy. Spread the tomato mix on the bread. If you like, you can sprinkle some black pepper on top. Serve immediately.
