Easy Bruschetta

1 or two packs of cherry tomatoes
1/2 c. olive oil
basil leaves
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper to taste

Chop tomatoes as small as you can, and put them in a bowl. Mix in all ingredients.


I sort of made this recipe up, and just added things to taste, not really with any specific measurements. I serve it with Italian bread as an appetizer for pasta (bowtie pasta, homemade creamy tomato sauce, and shrimp). Bryan and I always order bruschetta at restaurants, so I was happy to find out how easy it is to make at home!


  1. I also love bruschetta! I've never tried to make it, though - it sounds good! How do you make the shrimp bowtie pasta? That also sounds delish! Specifically the homemade creamy tomato sauce... :o)

  2. the sauce is really easy, i made it one time when i didn't have any pasta sauce in the apartment--i saute some onions, then add some whipping cream (usually however much is leftover from this chowder recipe that i like), diced tomatoes if i have them, and canned tomatoes, then season with basil, oregano, garlic, salt and pepper. i kind of just throw whatever in a pot and heat it up lol
