Artichoke and Sun-Dried Tomato Bruschetta
My family excepts me to bring these bruschetta to every function. The artichoke sun-dried tomato combination is a tasty alternative to the traditional versions. I've even tossed the mixture with spaghetti for a fun change of pace.—
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
- 36 slices French bread baguette (1/2 inch thick)
