Enjoy these classic Italian toasts with drinks before dinner or as a starter. Using bottled artichokes means you can enjoy them all year round.
Crostini, like bruschetta, are cut from good French or Italian breads. Crostini are usually thinner, about 1cm thick, but you could cut the bread slightly thicker to make bruschetta. Smaller crostini are easiest to eat as a nibble with drinks whereas the slightly larger bruschetta make a more generous first course.
Very tasty and easy - also works well as a ligth lunch. - 31 Jan 2010
