Little Crusts

1 1/2 lb Ricotta cheese
1/2 c Grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 c Grated Romano cheese
3 tb Olive oil
3 Cloves garlic -- minced
3 Hot Italian sausages -- about 4 inches long
1 1/2 tb Fennel seed
Salt and freshly ground
Pepper -- to taste
36 Baguette slices -- 2-1/2 Inch


Preheat broiler. In a large bowl, combine ricotta, Parmesan, and Romano cheeses. In a medium skillet over moderate heat, heat olive oil. Add garlic and cook 45 seconds. Add sausages and cook slowly until they are well browned and cooked through (15 to 20 minutes). Remove from pan and cool completely, then remove casings.

Crumble sausage and add to cheeses, along with any oil and garlic in the skillet. Add fennel seed and season with salt and pepper; mix well.

Spread cheese mixture on bread slices and broil until bubbly and lightly browned. Serve immediately.

Makes 3 dozen crostini.
