There is a Spanish restaurant, Iberia, in Menlo Park, California that we used to love to go to for tapas. One of my favorite things to have was pa amb tomàquet. Catalan for "bread with tomato," pa amb tomàquet is simple to make and simply delicious. It consists of toasted bread rubbed with tomato and is sometimes accompanied or topped with sausage, ham, anchovies, grilled vegetables or cheese. My favorite version at Iberia is served with a layer of hand-sliced cured ham, which is cut off of a beautiful leg perched on the bar.
This easy appetizer, or meal if served with salad, takes no culinary skill to prepare. Simply toast slices of a good quality bread, cut a tomato in half and rub it on one side and lay a slice or two of prosciutto on top.
