Ali's Amazing Bruschetta
This recipe was great and I received many compliments when I served it at my wine party. I took the advice of other reviews and added fresh minced garlic (maybe a bit too much - I tend to over garlic my food because I love it!). I did make an additional alteration. When I think of Brushetta, I think of a nice, big chunk of fresh mozzarella cheese! So this is how I altered this recipe: 1) I mixed in a small dish, fresh pressed garlic cloves and olive oil and brush this on the tops of the bread slices before toasting in the oven 2) Toasted the bread before adding the tomato mixture 3) The store was out of fresh basil so I used dried basil as well as dried parsley, however I did use fresh oregano and that really added a lot to the flavor of the tomato mixture 4) I added some more fresh pressed garlic to the tomato mixture and about 1 tablespoon of vinegar, HINT: If you mix the tomato mixture together and refrigerate for about 20 minutes, the brushetta will be more flavorful! 5) When it came to putting them together, I placed a thick slice of fresh mozzarella on top of the toasted bread slices, then the tomato mixture then sprinkled with the Parmesan 6) Baked them a little bit more after putting everything together so the cheeses would melt slightly. This recipe was ABSOLUTELY delicious and I will definitely make again!! Thanks Ali!
