1 (8-ounce) block part-skim mozzarella cheese
1 (8-ounce) block reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
1 cup fat-free Italian dressing
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 (12-ounce) French baguette
Fresh basil leaves (optional)


Cut cheeses into 1/4-inch-thick slices; place slices in a 13- x 9-inch dish, overlapping slightly.

Combine dressing and pepper; pour over cheese. Cover and chill 8 hours.

Preheat oven to 350°.

Cut baguette into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Place on baking sheets. Bake at 350°° for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly toasted, turning once.

Drain cheeses. Place 1 cheese slice on each bread slice. Garnish with fresh basil, if desired.

Tip: To make ahead, marinate the cheese overnight in the refrigerator. Toast the bread a day ahead, and store it at room temperature. Assemble the appetizers right before serving.
