Ingredients

  • 18 slices baguette bread cut on the diagonal about 1/4-inch thick
  • olive oil Extra-virgin
  • 2 jars marinated artichoke hearts 6 to 6 1/2 ounces each
  • 1/2 cup flat-leaf parsley plus 2 tablespoons chopped divided
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese grated preferably Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • black pepper Freshly-ground
  • 6 ounces creamy goat cheese crumbled

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Brush baguette bread slices on both sides with olive oil and place them on a baking sheet. Bake slices until just crisp, about 3 minutes a side. Remove from oven and leave on baking sheet. (Bread can be toasted 3 hours ahead; cover loosely with foil and leave at room temperature.)
  • Drain artichokes, reserving about 2 tablespoons of the oil they were packed in, and place them in a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Add reserved 2 tablespoons artichoke oil, 1/2 cup of the parsley, Parmesan cheese, and several grindings of black pepper. Process, pulsing machine, until mixture is a coarse puree. (Puree can be prepared 3 hours ahead; cover and leave at cool room temperature.)
  • When ready to serve, spread each bread slice with a mound of artichoke puree and top with some crumbled goat cheese. (Bruschetta can be assembled 1 hour ahead; leave uncovered, at room temperature.)
  • When ready to eat, bake until cheese is melted and bruschetta are warm, approximately 5 to 6 minutes. Sprinkle bruschetta with black pepper and some of the remaining parsley. Serve warm on a platter.
  • Makes 18 bruschettas.
