Bruschetta by Julia

Phillip has been bugging me about this Bruschetta for a month. He took me to see the movie Julie & Julia a few weeks ago, and has been asking me to use our fresh tomatoes to make Julia's version of one of his favorite dishes ever since. I couldn't find her recipe, but I knew from the movie that she fried her bread in olive oil, so I winged the rest.

This isn't really a recipe, but I'll just explain the steps.

Fry sliced crusty bread in shallow olive oil over medium heat until lightly browned. Top with chopped tomatoes, julienned basil, extra virgin olive oil and grated Parmesan cheese. I served it in a pool of olive oil, just like we had in Italy.
