Wonderful bruschetta recipe!!! I used Italian bread instead of whole wheat baguette and this turned out delicious. Will make this again.

Perfection on a plate! Seriously, good. Followed this exactly, and used the basil in a jar. I did have some fresh I also put on too! So nice and crispy, and this was scarfed up faster then button popping off a pair of pants. Delicious! The best! Made for *Everyday is a Holiday* May 2010
