How To Make Great Cheesy Bruschetta

Bruschetta is a lovely tomato topping on top of crusty calabrese bread in our house. I love adding cheese to the mix as well. Here's how I do mine:

Dice 2-3 tomatoes really small and toss with a bit of good quality olive oil, a pinch of garlic powder and a pinch of Italian seasoning (something with oregano and basil)

Butter crusty bread wedges with a bit of garlic butter and then put some mozzarella shreds on top. On top of that, put a spoonful of your tomato topping and then put under the broiler for a minute or two until everything is bubbly and yummy. I often sprinkle some fresh parmigiana or romano cheese on top while they're still hot. This might not be a traditional bruschetta but it goes quickly when I have company over!s Enjoy!

Goes great with spaghetti or lasagna.
