This bread goes great with any Italian or Mediterranean meal. I've also cut the bread into smaller pieces and served it as an appetizer.

  • In a saucepan over medium heat, stir together tomatoes, garlic, salt, lemon zest, and brown sugar. Cook, stirring constantly, until tomatoes release their juices, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low.

  • Cut each half of ciabatta into 2 or 3 pieces. Place cut-side up on a baking sheet, and bake in preheated oven until golden brown.

  • Meanwhile, stir lemon juice, olive oil, and pepper into the tomato mixture. Cook, uncovered, over medium heat until mixture is thick, about 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from heat, and spread tomato sauce over sliced bread. Serve hot.
