Ingredients

  • 16 slices baguette or french bread (cut 1/4 inch thick)
  • 375g Italian sausage
  • 375 ml Italian-style tomato sauce (use your favorite Italian sauce)
  • 225g ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
     

 

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375° F (190° C)
  2. Line up baguette slices on a large baking pan. 
  3. Bake baguette for 8-10 minutes, until lightly toasted. Then remove from oven.
  4. In a large pot/pan on the stove cook the sausage, breaking it up into pieces as it cooks. Add the tomato sauce and bring it to a simmer. Cook on low heat for 15 minutes.
  5. Mix together ½ cup parmesan cheese and ricotta cheese. Evenly pour cheese mix on crostini, about ½ tablespoon per bread slice. Cover crostini with sauce and sprinkle with the rest of the parmesan and mozzarella cheese (if there’s any left)
  6. Return to oven and bake for 3-5 minutes, until the cheese starts to melt. Place the crostini on a plate.
  7. (Optional) Put a bit of fresh basil on top, if you wish.
