  • One 5-ounce piece of day-old French baguette with crust, cut into 1-inch cubes (5 cups)
  • 1 1/2 pounds small cherry tomatoes
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 medium garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley

  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

How to make this recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°. Lightly oil a 10-inch ceramic quiche dish. In a large bowl, toss the bread cubes with the tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, parsley, Parmigiano-Reggiano and salt and pepper. Scrape the mixture into the baking dish and bake in the center of the oven for 35 minutes, or until the bread cubes are browned and crisp and the tomatoes are very tender. Serve warm or at room temperature.
