Roasted Tomatoes with Balsamic Vinegar Reduction on Crostini

Bruschetta as most of you know is an amazing antipasto from Italy. It consists of roasted crostini or french baguette grilled in butter topped off with veggies and fruits.My favourite toppings on a bruschetta are cheese, grilled tomatoes, basil and onion.Today I took bruschetta to the next level by adding a glaze made with balsamic vinegar which is a game changer.

I am not exaggerating when I say this but not trying this recipe is a crime against humanity.
