Units Scale
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can Red Gold Petite Diced Tomatoes
  • 2 t olive oil
  • 1 clove minced garlic, or 1/4t dried minced garlic
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 12 T butter or buttery spread, melted
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 French baguette, cut into 1/2-in slices


  1. Combine tomatoes, onion, olive oil, and chopped fresh basil in a medium bowl. If using the dried garlic, add it as well. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. You can make this topping as much as two hours ahead; simply cover and allow the mixture to stand at room temperature, tossing it occasionally.
  2. Preheat the broiler. Place the baguette slices on a baking sheet and brush slices with the melted butter. If using fresh garlic, add it on top.
  3. Toast bread until tops are golden brown, watching closely to avoid burning. I tend to check about every thirty seconds, because my oven is temperamental.
