I made this a few weeks ago for the first time and I really liked it. The sweet taste of tomatoes and basil. Crunchy bread slathered with olive oil. It is divine. And I say this because bruschetta wasn't the thing I ordered in a restaurant. It was mozzarella sticks or some other fried greasy thing. And now I am regretting all those times that I could have had this yummy dish. Well not any more. I will make it and have it lots of times. And I did, for the Superbowl. I didn't assemble it before hand but put the crostini and the tomato mixture separate so that the bread wouldn't get soggy. That is also a good tip to save you time and effort if you are planning a party. The guests can serve themselves as they go along the buffet. The recipe above is for 4 people for an appetizer portion.
