  1. Preheat the broiler.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the tomatoes, basil, garlic, oregano, red pepper, salt, pepper and olive oil. Use more olive oil, if necessary, to coat the entire mixture. Allow the mixture to sit for 10 minutes.
  3. Slice the bread. On a baking tray, arrange the slices in a single layer. Brown both sides of the bread slightly in the oven. Remove the slices from the oven. Spread the tomato mixture on the slices. Broil 2 to 3 minutes, or until the mixture is hot but not cooked.

Something else. add a dash of balsamic vinegar, use sundried tomatoes oil instead of olive oil, minus red pepper and add onion instead of garlic. - 17 Sep 2010
