    Bruschetta, also called Fetunta ("oily slice") is little more than slices of toasted italian bread rubbed with a garlic clove and drizzled with olive oil. It's the authentic garlic bread.

    All you need is a good loaf of bread preferably from an artisan baker. Those loaves of "Italian" bread at the supermaket will crumble when rubbed with garlic. You need a loaf that's a bit more dense than that.

    I also like to top mine with a little fresh ground black pepper. Another nice additional topping is fresh chopped tomatoes and arugula.

    fresh basil, garlic, good olive oil, tomatoes for the basics. Feta cheese and toasted pine nuts are good too.

    I guess I was thinking more along the lines of the tomatoe based topping. My sister usually brings me down some when she visits, but I want to make my own.

    Chop tomatoes, dice basil, and mince garlic (don't crush it). Place in berry strainer with some salt. Meanwhile, rub good bread slices with olive oil on both sides and broil until golden, flip, and repeat. Top toast with your tomato topping and enjoy.

    I thought that bread rubbed with garlic drizzled with oil was crostini?
