    Cherry Tomato Bruschetta

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 8 minutes
    • Total time: 18 minutes 20 minutes

    Makes: 16

    Ingredients

    • 1 Waitrose Ready to Bake Ciabatta
    • 3 tbsp 'Il Grezzo' Italian Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
    • 250g cherry tomatoes, washed and halved
    • 1 pack fresh basil, stalks removed
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

    Method

    1. Preheat the oven to 220°C, gas mark 7. Trim the ends off the ciabatta then cut it into 16 slices. Brush each side lightly with 2 tbsp olive oil and place on a baking tray in a single layer.
    2. Mix the remaining olive oil with the garlic and cherry tomatoes and a little seasoning. Spread the mixture on the slices of bread.
    3. Bake for 6-8 minutes, until the bread is crisp and the tomatoes softened. Leave for at least 2 minutes before serving, to allow the tomatoes to cool slightly. Roughly shred the basil leaves, scatter over the top and serve.
