1 1/2 lbs or so of plum or grape tomatoes, halved, then sliced thinly
1 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
3-4 cloves garlic(chopped)
1/4 cup chopped fresh oregano leaves
Balsamic vinegar, drizzled sparingly over bread before topping with the other ingredients
Olive oil, (enough to spread over bread)
(6) 3/4-inch-thick slices of crusty bread. Either Italian rustic or French works great
½ cup parmesan
Top Sliced bread with equal amounts of arranged ingredients.
Salt and pepper to taste and top with cheese.
Toast under broiler until cheese is melted.
