Tomato, Mozzarella and Basil Bruschetta

Bruschetta is a slice of heaven!

Did you know bruschetta’s (pronounced brusketta) origins trace back to medieval time?! The name cames from the Roman bruscare, meaning ‘roasted over coals’.

This italian antipasto is such an easy entree to create.

The basic recipe consists in nothing more than a slice of grilled bread rubbed with garlic and topped with olive oil and salt, with tomatoes being very popular as well.

Basics: Ciabatta bread, garlic, mozzarella cheese, tomatoes, basil, olive oil, salt and pepper.
