Meatless Recipe - Bruscetta
Bruscetta is a fresh tomato sauce served over crisp Baguette toast. It also makes a good sauce for pasta. You will need the freshest tomato to get the best flavor.
4 large ripe tomatoes (or approximately 6 Roma Tomatoes)
5 large garlic cloves, minced finely
Fresh Basil leaves, sliced thinly
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
Wash the tomatoes and then slice them thinly so that you can dice them into small pieces. Add the minced garlic, basil and season with salt and pepper. Let side for at least an hour or so. Serve with toasted garlic baguette slices or over pasta.
Slice a fresh baguette into approximately 1/2 inch thick slices. Place on a baking sheet.
Brush each slice with extra virgin olive oil.
Sprinkle with granulated garlic (or powder but not garlic salt)
Place in a cold oven and preheat oven at 350 degrees. When the oven is ready, turn off the oven and let the baguette slices continue to brown for approximately 5 minutes more. Top each slice with the Bruscetta sauce.
Make sure to refrigerate the sauce.
