This morning I decided to use a punnet of mixed tomatoes along with some mushrooms and bacon to create a lighter yet filling brunch. Such a mixture of vegetables, some herbs, a little bacon all served on a toasted slice of Pane di Case - YUM!!
To be perfectly honest this would make a lovely pasta topping or as a side dish with a meat.
