Although this recipe is introduced as having Spanish inspiration it has always been one of our favorites in my extended Italian family. Mama made it for us as after-school snacks with freshly baked bread from the baker down the street, still warm from the oven. I will say, however, that it was never thought of as a side, just a wonderful snack anytime of day or evening. Yum!
Grilled Tomato Bread
This rustic side dish has a Spanish inspiration, and although it's simple to make, it's rich with the flavor of ripe tomatoes.
