Favorite Recipe--Tomato Bruschetta

For birthdays in our family, we always take the kids to Macaroni Grill. Dentist husband and I love it because it is not fast food and the kids love it because they always bring out a huge piece of chocolate cake for the birthday person. Toothsome #1 always orders their appetizer, tomato bruschetta for his main coarse. Last night for dinner, I had a craving and tried to duplicate their recipe. Toothsome #1 claimed it tastes just like the one at Macaroni Grill.

Tomato Bruschetta

4 medium sized tomatoes, diced
4-6 fresh basil leaves--minced
6 Tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

8 slices of french bread

Toast french bread, rub with fresh garlic and put tomato mixture on top. Add a thin slice of fresh Parmesan cheese on top.
