"Anchovy and sun dried tomato - great combination. Keep a supply of toasts in a tin box so you always have some on hand. You may make this spread the day before to cut back on the work at Party time. This recipe was inspired by Derf's Crostini recipe"

I asked Bergy if she minded me reviewing her recipe if I used a ready-made sun-dried tomato pesto (since I already had a jar of that and wanted to use it up before making anything new) and she thought it would be ok. I can't imagine the pestos being very much different. I also used some anchovy paste from a tube instead of a tin, since I keep the tubed stuff around for making caesar salad dressing. I had to figure out how much of each to use: and I thought each sun-dried tomato would amount to about a tablespoon, so if using 8, I figured 1/2 cup pesto. For the anchovy paste, I added it to the pesto until it seemed salty enough and had enough anchovy flavor, which turned out to be 3 teaspoons. The rest I made as planned. These are really quite delicious! If you detest anchovy just omit it and do make the recipe because it is divine. I found that if I baked the toasts ahead, it was easy enough to assemble later in only a few minutes so that makes this perfect for entertaining. This was served as a first course with chicken marsala. Thanks, Bergy, for sharing!
