This Roasted Tomato and Pancetta Bruschetta is a very simple dish and makes for the perfect party appetizer, or just to enjoy for lunch (so make sure you have plenty of leftovers).


Roasted Tomato and Pancetta Bruschetta


  • Baguette
  • 1 can Hunts Diced Tomatoes (drained)
  • 1 jar or can of artichokes (roughly chopped)
  • 1/2 cup Pancetta – Italian bacon (diced)
  • 1 red onion (diced)
  • 1 heaped tsp crushed garlic
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • olive oil
  • fresh basil (chiffonade)
  • Parmesan (shaved)

Preheat the oven to 325F.

Gently combine the tomato, artichoke, pancetta, onion, garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper in a bowl.

Place a piece of foil over a cookie sheet. Spread the tomato mixture over the foil and place in the oven for approximately 30 minutes.

Slice the baguette and place on a second cookie sheet. Brush with just a little olive oil and place in the oven for the last 8 minutes of the tomato mixture cooking (or more, depending on how browned you prefer your bread, I don't like it very crunchy and brown).

Transfer the tomato mixture to a bowl and top with parmesan cheese and basil.  Serve with the toasted bread slices.

Tip:  If using this dish for a party appetizer, leave some of the bread fresh, place in a basket and serve with dishes of gourmet oils and balsamic vinegar for dipping.

Did you know: The red antioxidant, lycopene is found naturally in tomatoes. We get most of our lycopene from tomatoes and its absorption is two to three times greater in canned tomatoes than raw tomatoes.

The bruschetta was even more delicious today on a sandwich (made with fresh french bread that I picked up at the market this morning) with salami and swiss cheese.  Okay, I may have ended up eating two of them, but who's counting, right :)>
