This isn’t bread and stew, it is bruschetta [pronounced bru-ske-ta]. It is beyond being just a sauce, it is fresh food in disguise. To enjoy, try letting the juice soak on the bread. This Italian quick fix is worth trying this weekend, don’t you think so?
Dice the tomatoes and ground the pepper, then set aside. Also, chop the basil and mince the garlic. Set aside.
Combine the tomatoes, pepper, garlic, oil, basil, pepper and salt in a bowl and stir gently to blend all the flavour. Cover and refrigerate for hours or overnight.
Preheat the oven broiler setting when the bruschetta has marinated enough.Cut the french stick on the diagonal in ¾ inch slices. Place the bread on a single layer on a sheet pan and broil on the top rack for about 1-3 minutes or until golden brown. But ensure the bread doesn’t burn.
Allow the bread to cool and top with spoonfuls of bruschetta mixture.
