Ingredients

1/4 cup (2 ounces) goat cheese, softened
1/4 cup (2 ounces) tub-style light cream cheese with chives and onion
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
16 (1/2-inch-thick) slices diagonally cut French bread baguette
Olive oil-flavored cooking spray
4 garlic cloves, halved
3/4 cup marinara sauce
1 tablespoon tomato paste with Italian herbs
2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400°.

Combine first 3 ingredients in a small bowl; mash with a fork until well blended and smooth.

Coat both sides of bread slices with cooking spray; rub each side of bread with garlic halves. Place bread in a single layer on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake at 400° for 6 minutes or until lightly toasted. Turn slices over, and spread about 1 1/2 teaspoons cheese mixture on each slice. Bake at 400° for 5 minutes or until cheese mixture is warm.

While bruschetta bakes, heat marinara sauce and tomato paste in a small saucepan over medium heat. Spoon about 1 1/2 teaspoons sauce down center of each bruschetta; sprinkle with basil. Serve immediately.
