Pinch of red pepper flakes

1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, sliced into ribbons

1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

1/2 baguette, sliced into 1/2-inch rounds (about 14 slices)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Add the tomatoes, garlic, 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, red pepper flakes, basil and balsamic vinegar to a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Let sit at room temperature while you toast the bread.
