Delicious Italian Bruschetta Recipe

Pronounced broo-sket-ta, it is another preparation of Italian cuisine that has been adopted and modified the world over. In its basic form, it is a slice of grilled Italian bread, rubbed with garlic, sprinkled with salt and pepper and drizzled with olive oil. The bread was traditionally roasted on a brustolina grill. It is a wonderful accompaniment for red wine, as it brings out its flavor. These days the term bruschetta has come to signify garlic toast topped with diced tomatoes.
