Wonderful ingredients however, after making as written, it was too bland so I read reviews & with those additions, it was 5*! Use 6 Roma tomatoes & remove seeds & pulp. Reduce oil to 1 tablespoon and use only 1/3 cup of finely chopped red onion or shallots. Increase parsley & basil to 2 tablespoons each & keep oregano the same. Add 2 tablespoons minced garlic (can be from a jar), 1/2 teaspoon sugar, 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar, 1/4 + 1/8 teaspoon each of Kosher salt & fresh cracked pepper. Marinade in fridge overnight. Cut French baguette into 1/2" slices, brush both sides with "garlic" olive oil & bake 4 minutes at 400. Using slotted spoon, add topping, cheese & broil 1 minute. On one occasion, I wanted my bruschetta for a picnic so I sprinkled grated part-skim Parmesan over the bread after brushing it with oil & baked it for 8 minutes at 400. I then served the topping cold on the side. My family had 3 slices each.
