Sometimes happens that it is a pity throw away some slices of bread because it isn’t freshly baked... Bruschette, such as  the Panzanella, is one of the favourite way for Italians to use the old bread and to revitalize the unique aroma of a loaf just out of the oven!
The homemade bread (called casareccio in italian language) is the best choice for this typical Italian recipe.
1st step: Turn on the oven to 220° to preheat
2nd step: Chop some tomatoes (remove the skin if you prefer) and dress them with  extra virgin olive oil, salt and basil.
3rd step: Cut the bread on thick slices, rub them with a fresh garlic, and cook only one side of each slice with a little olive oil for 3-4 minutes
4th step: Put the the bread on a serving platter and top each slice with the “tomatoes sauce”

Buon Appettito!
