Thanks for sharing some of the best Italian dishes. Tomatoes are one of my favorite foods, so the Bruschetta with fresh tomatoes looks amazing. It seems like it would be a great appetizer for a lot of different occasions since it is served on bread. I will have to try it the next time my husband and I go out for Italian food. http//www.valentinoswoodfire.com
