Bruschetta al Pomodoro (Bruschetta with Tomatoes)

Ro-Ri San has been travelling quite a bit lately. His most recent business trip took him to Italy. He managed to squeeze a weekend in Rome into his tight schedule. I wish I could have joined him but Ro-Jiro is still a minor and school is in session. Perhaps I will do that the next time. The wonderful thing though is that Ro-Ri San is always willing to go shopping for me. Being a foodie, my requests are often food base and that can be pretty challenging for a guy. Often, he has to go out of his way to meet those requests. He is definitely a keeper and I am one lucky gal! :D

This time I asked for pasta and he brought home an interesting variety which I will be sharing in the days ahead. He also surprised me with a few packets of bread and pasta seasonings and a beautiful bottle of balsamic vinegar. I was thrilled and could not wait to put all the ingredients to good use.

Ingredients for Bruschetta al Pomodoro

There is a simple recipe attached to the back of this bruschetta al pomodoro seasoning which sounded really good. I quickly went to the store for some ciabatta, juicy vine ripened tomatoes, a wedge of parmesan reggiano, and a bunch of Italian parsley. Although the latter two were not specified in the recipe, I thought it would be really pretty to add some additional color and texture to the bruschetta, not to mention flavor.

I was really happy with the way the bruschetta turned out. They were very tasty and pretty. Ro-Jiro who is a fan of Italian food said that they were really good and he would love to have more of it. I am glad to oblige as these are so simple to put together.

You can probably make your own seasoning. Any combination of dehydrated tomatoes, garlic, oregano, onion, carrot, celery, and salt would work.

      Thanks Denise for the kind words! I think Ro-Jiro could have easily finished the whole lot by himself. I made him another slice yesterday and he said he can still have more. :D
