In a bowl, mix together the tomatoes,
2 tablespoons garlic, chopped basil leaves, salt and pepper to taste. Set aside so garlic flavor may permeate the tomatoes. If you have time, it is preferable to cover and refrigerate for a few hours, though the earth will not fall out of its orbit if you don't.
In a large skillet, heat olive oil and 1 tablespoon of the garlic. Fry bread slices in a single layer, turning to cook on both sides, until turning golden.
the bread slices on a serving platter and spoon the tomato
mixture onto each slice.
Serves: 4 - 6
