Peel a clove of garlic and rub over one side of each ciabatta slice. As you rub over the garlic it will finely grate against the crusty toast, releasing it's potent flavour.
Slice up the sundried tomatoes and lay over the ciabatta. You can also drizzle a little of the olive oil the tomatoes have come in.
Finely chop and sprinkle over anchovies. They are packed full of flavour and very salty so you only need a little.
Finish by grinding over black pepper and scattering some torn basil leaves.
