Ingredients
  • 2 pints grape tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 loaf sesame semolina bread
  • 2 cloves garlic, halved
  • 4 scallions, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup basil leaves, thinly sliced
Directions
  • Heat the oven to 400 degrees F.

  • Coat the tomatoes in olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast 20 minutes to concentrate the flavor and burst the tomatoes.

  • Cut 2 large "planks" of bread each 1-inch thick by slicing the bread lengthwise horizontally. Reserve the rest of the loaf for another use.

  • When you remove the tomatoes from the oven, switch on broiler. Char bread on both sides then rub hot bread with cut garlic.

  • In a bowl, lightly mash the roasted tomatoes and combine with scallions and basil. Top the large planks with tomato mixture then cut each giant crostini into 4 pieces, 8 pieces total.
