Tomato Basil Cannellini Bruschetta - The Tuscan Way


The first thing that comes to my mind when I think of Tuscan cooking is the simplicity of it. I first experienced it during our visit to Italy way back in 2011 and we took a day trip to Tuscany from Florence. We stopped by a winery for lunch and even though the vegetarian option for lunch was a simple omelet and cheese as the appetizer course and a very delicious and flavorful spaghetti with pomodoro sauce for the main course. It was simple, yet, it was one of the best meals I have had and I can still remember the taste of it. I kept wondering how such a simple meal can be made so delicious, with such a complexity of flavors. It is the simple fresh ingredients in it that made that possible.

Such depth of flavors with the Tuscan touch can be found in Bertolli sauces. Their humble beginnings are from Lucca, Tuscany. The Bertolli way of cooking is the Tuscan way where there is a lot of emphasis on preparing good ingredients in all their simplicity to make great Italian food. Tuscan cuisine uses simple fresh ingredients, just like in this Tomato Basil Cannellini Bean Bruschetta. All you need is a glass of Chianti to wash it all down with and you can take yourselves to Tuscany.

The cannellini beans is slightly sautéed with some garlic and Bertolli Tomato Basil sauce. Rustic bread is then toasted with olive oil brushed on it. Top the toasted bread with the Tomato Basil Cannellini. Drizzle some olive oil and balsamic vinegar and a final touch of fresh basil is all you need to make this simple and rustic yet flavorful and elegant dish.
