RECIPE FOR PAN CON TOMATE (TOMATO BREAD)
This is a classic that can be eaten as is, or can be embellished with any number of toppings. But a good quality country bread, such as Pan Pugliese, ripe plum tomatoes, and fruity olive oil are essential. Pan Con Tomate can be enjoyed with the Spanish Tortillas or a Spanish sheep’s milk cheese, such as Manchego.
