One of the thing that I really miss from Italy its the aperitivo time/happy hour..ohhh how  I miss la dolce vita…..After 5 o’clock you get together with your friends or lover and you go to the bar for a nice  drink and bite to eat before dinner….a must in almost every bar is bruschetta a piece of bread grilled topped with tomatoes and oil ,we call that pane e good my favorite appetizer so easy to make with few simple ingredients let go see how to do it.


  • 10 cherry tomatoes
  •  4 basil leaves,
  • 4 slices of bread
  • 1 garlic clove,
  • oil evo,
  • salt to taste
  • a sprinkle of love


  • Cut your bread and toast the both sides in a griller or on a frying pan.
  • Once golden brown,take each slice and scrub it with a clove of garlic.
  • Now cut the tomatoes in small cubes or if you use cherry tomatoes cut them in half and them cut them in half again so from 1 tomatoes you will try to have 8 small pieces.
  • Pour the tomatoes in a bowl put the oil,salt basil and mix for a little bit.
  • Take your bread put it in a nice serving plate and put the tomatoes and oil mixture… can also add some mozzarella cubes if you like or olive ..I did it simple ..enjoy it with a nice glass of prosecco and have some dolce vita at your house
