Asparagus and Parmesan Bruschetta

Bruschetta is Italian fast food. The base is simply griddled sourdough bread, rubbed with garlic and drizzled with Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil. This is delicious enough on its own, but can be topped with just about anything! We have four Italian favourites to share.
