BRUSCHETTA (Italian Recipe)

· Loaf of French bread
· 5 medium tomatoes (chopped)
· 3-4 cloves minced garlic
· Juice from 1/2 lime
· 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
· 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
· 1 tbs fresh basil
· Salt and pepper
Mix diced tomatoes (juice and all), minced garlic, olive oil, lime juice, 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese (keep the rest for later), basil, and salt and pepper (to taste).
Allow to stand for several hours to marinade. Slice bread at an angle, brush one side with melted butter, and broil on each side until brown.
Spoon mixture onto bread, and top with reserved Parmesan. Broil until cheese has melted.
Best when served immediately to avoid getting moist.
