Why are people constantly adding things like cheese, meat and the like to bruschetta? If you want that, make a sandwich! It's hard to improve on this tried and true take on the simple ingredients that came together to make a classic!

Replace the parmesan cheese by a tablespoon of good balsamic vinegar and this will be a healthier bruschetta. DELICIOUS!

As a novice cook this recipes simplicity called out to me. Very simple preparation, the only thing I tried differently was adding 2 tsp of basalmic vinagar. It really helped kick things up. Delicious! I look forward to preparing this recipe again.

Try actually putting the sliced bread on a real charcoal grill outside first. Toast each side so it has nice grill lines on it, and so the bread almost is burnt a bit on the edges, not just toasted. The "grilled" bread actually improves the overall taste and makes this more rustic and authentic. It takes extra work, but it's worth it.

Great recipe. My family and I couldn't stop eating this, it was so good. I did add some vinegar to the recipe as some other users suggested. I'm glad I did cause it made it that much more good.

This is good even with canned diced tomatoes and dried herbs! My whole family loved it...
