White Bean Bruschetta

20 mins (prep 15, cooking 5)
11 ingredients
8 servings
Found in a Taste of Home appetizer publication. I love to have this in the summer on the patio with a glass of wine!! Depending on how high you like to heap the bruschetta topping, you may want to consider doubling the topping. I have used canned fire roasted tomatoes with good results as well. The original recipe states it serves 20, but as a wise zaar member pointed out, unless you have lots of other appetizers, there's no way this would satisfy 20. So I changed it to 8, which is 2-3 slices a piece depending on the size of your baguette!
