Tomato Basil Bruschetta for Lunch

It's that wonderful time of year again when flowers and gardens slow their growing to allow for late summer harvests. I love incorporating fresh berries on my cereals for breakfasts, and the vegetables and herbs for lunches and suppers. A long-time favorite combination is tomato and basil. There is so much you can do with the two!
Last year I shared a favorite from Tasha Tudor's Cookbook, and today it's Tomato Basil Bruschetta.

If you must have exact measurements I can share the measurements for more servings, which came from a page from the Editor's Pick. The following is for a single serving size which I "threw together" for my lunch today.

Mix together:
2 small homegrown tomatoes, chopped
4 to 5 fresh basil leaves, finely chopped
Dashes of salt, pepper, garlic powder, crushed red pepper, and parmesan cheese

Spoon on top of:
One slice of your favorite bread (or two small slices), lightly toasted and buttered
