Lisa: Bruschetta

Welcome to another week at Five Crafty Sisters!  I am very happy because I finished two projects this past weekend!  This is big for me because usually I get 3/4 of the way into a project and get distracted or bored and don't finish.  Well, that might be a bit of an exaggeration but not too much!  I will show you the finished project maybe on Friday but for sure by Monday.  I first have to mail them to their prospective recipients.

For today's post, I thought I'd show you a terrific use for all those summer tomatoes that are in abundance this time of year: Bruschetta.  Now, this is a dish that I think everyone has a recipe for but this is so fantastic that I thought I'd share it with you anyway!!  Most recipes I've seen don't have garlic in the tomato mixture so if you don't like raw garlic feel free to leave it out!

5 Roma tomatoes, chopped
1 medium onion, diced
5 large leaves basil, diced
salt and pepper to taste
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
1 French baguette, sliced to 1/4"-1/2" slices
1/4-1/2 c. shredded Parmesan cheese

Place sliced bread onto a cookie sheet cut side up.  Place under broiler until bread is lightly toasted.  Take out of oven and turn bread slices over.  Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and put back under broiler until bread is lightly toasted.  Set aside.
Combine chopped tomatoes, minced garlic, diced onion and basil in a bowl.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Stir to combine.  Serve tomato mixture over your bruschetta for a delicious and light summer treat! 

Hope you have a fantastic week!
