Artichoke & Basil Bruschetta

Makes about 18-20 bruschette

(a Shutterbean original recipe)

Cut the baguette into 1/2 inch slices on the diagonal. Brush or dip each side of the bread lightly with olive oil. Grill bread on medium high heat, about 3-4 minutes per side. When the bread has slightly cooled, take a clove of garlic and rub across the top of each slice. Spread a tablespoon of ricotta on top of bread and place a piece of basil leaf and top with a marinated artichoke heart. Top each one with a slice of Parmesan cheese, squeeze a bit of lemon over each one and top with salt & pepper. Serve immediately.
