Hearty Tuscan Crostini

From Italian Cooking and Living, June/July 2002

For a quick appetizer, spread some blended stew onto toasted bread.

  • 1 baguette or crusty Italian bread
  • 3 cups Tuscan beef stew
  • fresh basil
  • 12 cherry tomatoes for garnish

Preheat oven to 350. Cut bread into 1/2-inch-thick slices, arrange on a baking sheet, and toast in the oven until golden. Reheat 3 cups of stew. In a food processor, pulse until blended, about 5 or 10 seconds. Spoon sauce onto toasted bread slices and heat in the oven for another 5 minutes. Garnish with fresh basil leaves or halved cherry tomatoes. Serves 6
