Bruschette (plural for bruschetta) is a staple base for a simple and satisfying Italian snack or meal. The history behind bruschette is rooted deep in the traditions of old world farmers. Image for a moment, country farmers going out in the beginning of November for olive harvesting. With a fire going nearby, farmers, workers, friends and family gather around and toast thick slices of bread. Once the bread is browned and toasted, they rub it with fresh garlic and liberally drizzle first pressed olive oil over it and sprinkle with salt and pepper. In your kitchen, Lazzaroni Bruschette provides the base for any number of toppings. Bruschetta can begin a meal as an appetizer, just right for a quick late-night snack topped with leftovers, or can be served as the main course of a casual dinner.
