I love tomatoes, love bruschetta, and I absolutely love Raw Extra Virgin Olive Oil! There are so many variations of bruschetta. Don't hesitate to create your own.
For this particular one, I chose to add a drop of Balsamic Vinegar Glaze. I have to admit that It was, and always is delicious!

This is a typical dish from Messina which incorporates so many of the fresh ingredients of Sicilian cuisine. Recipes in Sicily vary so much by cities and regions and Vitina told me that despite visiting her family in Sicily so many times, this was the first time she ever experienced this dish. Her family is from the Eastern side and the food is different! This is a very popular recipe and is a creative way to make an eggplant spaghetti sandwich covered in rich tomato sauce, cheese and fresh basil.
