A traditional topping of roma tomatoes, fresh basil and extra-virgin olive oil. Served with toasted ciabatta bread.



  1. Turn on the oven to 450 °F (220 °C) to pre-heat, or fire up the grill outside.
  2. While the oven is heating, chop up the tomatoes finely.
  3. Put tomatoes, garlic, 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, vinegar in a bowl and mix. Add the chopped basil. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Slice the baguette on a diagonal about 1/2 inch thick slices.
  5. Once the oven has reached 450 °F, place a tray of bread slices in the oven on the top rack. Toast for 5-6 minutes, until the bread just begins to turn golden brown.
  6. Align the bread on a serving platter. Either place the tomato topping in a bowl separately with a spoon for people to serve themselves over the bread, or place some topping on each slice of bread and serve.

just control the amount of olive oil and make sure to stick to portions with the bread. You are allowed 2 starches with dinner and that would equal 3-4 bruschettas
