Easy Bruschetta

Standard

Bruschetta comes from the Italian word, Bruscare, which means “roasted over coals”.Somehow, somewhere along the way we borrowed “bruschetta” and “crostini” from the Italian lexicon and blurred their distinctions! Crostini means “Little toasts” traditionally meaning small, or thin slices of bread usually toasted.In both, they are antipasto which we can relate to as being an appetizer.

This recipe is quick and delicious involving tomatoes, Parmesan, basil and olive oil on a toasted baguette!
