- 1 (12 to 16-inch) baguette
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 1/4 cup grated parmigiano-reggiano, plus more for topping
- 2 cups diced tomatoes
- 1/3 cup fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced
- 1 1/2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Cut the baguette in medium slices, place on a sheet tray and bake in the oven until lightly brown. Sprinkle a bit of cheese on each slice. Return to oven to melt cheese.
In a medium bowl, add the tomatoes, minced garlic, basil, vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly and let sit for at least 5 minutes at room temperature.
Remove baguette slices from oven and top with the tomato mixture. Sprinkle a little more cheese on top and enjoy!
