I have been known to use this easy and quick Bruschetta recipe as a mid week meal. The fact that it is super tasty and filling means I get no complaints from the family. When I serve as a meal I will sometimes add feta cheese and some Chorizo as well, so good.
This recipe is like having a cafe meal in your own home, very easy to make and even easier to eat, give it a go next time you a to tired to cook or feel like something tasty and fresh!
