I came up with this recipe when I lived in Los Angeles, CA. It makes a great appetizer and is easy to make!

This bruschetta recipe is different from others I've made in that it introduces capers and a healthy amount of Parmigianino reggiano. It was a refreshing change from the traditional recipe, and I predict it would be a real hit at your next gathering!
