1 cup chopped tomatoes, Costoluto if you have them
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 tablespoon chopped basil
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
3 to 4 tablespoons Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl and let marinate at room temperature for at least one half hour. Use about a tablespoon and a half to top each crostini.
NOTE: If you don't have access to sweet vine-ripened Costoluto or similar tomatoes, you may need to add a teaspoon or two of sugar to the mixture.
