I thought it was pretty bland so the next time i doubled the basil chopped up 2 garlic cloves and added it to the tomato mixture then finished it off with some shredded mozzarella on top. It got a much better reception from my husband the second time. Read More

Great recipe! I find that adding a few drops of balsamic vinegar to the bread right before serving really enhances the flavor! Read More

I highly enjoyed this recipe. I read the reviews before I made it. I added one more clove of garlic and mozzarella cheese. I also decided to add 1tbsp of parsley to add flavor. Turned out great. Read More

I am looking for a good Bruschetta recipie. Tried this and it was just tomatos on bread. Expirimented a little bit and it was lovely. Add more basil add balsamic vinegar. Rub bread with garlic and then toast. Drizzle with olive oil and melt a little mozerella over it! This was far too bland!!! Read More

Something very important is missing in this recipe... GARLIC! It's okay like this but if you add a couple cloves of garlic chopped it has much more flavour. Fresh basil is also essential! Read More
