Double Tomato Bruschetta.

Double Tomato Bruschetta from Tamara:

6 Roma tomatoes, chopped and seeds removed
1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes, packed in oil
3 cloves minced garlic
1/4 cup olive oil
2 T balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup fresh basil, stems removed and chopped
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1 French baguette
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
olive oil to brush on baguette slices

Preheat oven on broiler setting. In a large bowl, combine the roma tomatoes, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, vinegar, basil, salt and pepper. Allow the mixture to sit for 10 minutes. Cut the baguette into 3/4 inch slices. On a baking sheet, arrange the baguette slices in a single layer. (You might want to put a layer of foil on the baking sheet prior to the baguette slices). Brush a light layer of olive oil on each piece. Broil for 1 to 2 minutes, until slightly brown. Divide the tomato mixture evenly over the baguette slices. Top the slices with mozzarella cheese. Broil for 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
