    littleturtle's Note:

    Juicy, summer tomatoes and fresh herbs are great for topping crusty, peasant bread. This is an excellent appetizer, or accompaniment to pasta or chicken. The cook time is really chill time.

      delicious bruschetta. ordered some out the other day and it just didnt taste good so decided to make my own using a recipe rather than "winging it". this was excellent. followed exactly except i did saute the minced garlic in some olive oil first to get it a bit golden as i like my garlic a little sweeter. loved the idea of the crushed red pepper; never had that on bruschetta before. will definitly make this again when the tomatoes are of better quality over the summer. thanks so much for sharing.
