      Dorothy - another winner! Have you noticed the calorie count? There must be a mistake - 617 Calories for 2 Crostini I think this must be for all 8 of them. I minced the tomatoe and basil together with the 6 Tbsp of fat free Italian dressing except for enough pieces of tomatoes to decorate each with a piece on top. Went over really well — Apr 1, 2002, Additional comments: I made these again and this time added 2 cloves of garlic and sprinkled parmesan on top - original or with the garlic excellent appetizer - I did use thin bread slices too Thanks again Derf

      I had this for lunch today and loved it! I scaled the recipe down for 2 people. I used homemade Italian dressing and wheat French bread. Thanks for something I will make again!
