Chevre is more French than Italian, but its delicious flavor and lower fat content take it
across culinary borders. Garden fresh tomatoes and basil make these crostini irresistible.
Makes 4 servings
1 1/2 ounces chevre (goat cheese)
4 ounces crusty Italian bread, cut into eight 1/2-ounce slices and toasted
4 small plum tomatoes, each cut into 4 slices
1/4 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
8 fresh basil leaves
Spread the chevre evenly over the bread slices; lay 2 slices of the tomato, slightly
overlapping if necessary, over each. Sprinkle evenly with salt and pepper and top
each with a basil leaf. Serve at room temperature.
