Day Three Phoenix: Pasta Pomodoro

Today's notable dining was dinner at Pasta Pomodoro. We first discovered this fresh-Italian restaurant in San Ramon, California. I'll never forget the first time we ordered their Bruschetta(*). Bruschetta in PEI or Toronto was generally four or six small grilled bread slices each with a dab of the diced tomato mix on top. Very small and dainty. Pomodoro's was four or six large grilled slices with a generous mound of extremely fresh tomato mix in the centre of the bowl -- a meal in itself!

Which is what I made it tonight!
