This is the bruscetta recipe I've been searching for. I don't like bruscetta with raw vegetables. I sprinkled the tomatoes with minced garlic and raw onions, poured about 2 Tbsp marsala and juice of one lime into the dish, sprinkled with salt and baked. Then I cooled it and drained off the excess liquid. A lot of tomatoes cooked down to only 1-2 cups of bruccetta, so be aware of that. But it is awesome. Mince some basil, sprinkle with some cheese, and you won't want to wait for the bread to toast!
