Bruschetta with sausage and stracchino cheese

Today’s recipe is ‘Il vecchio boscaiolo’, a bruschetta with sausage and stracchino cheese. It is a quick starter, perfect for an informal lunch or dinner.

This recipe is not difficult to prepare. All you need is a good sausage, stracchino cheese and bread. Personally, I prefer to use salty bread rather than bland bread because I like it better. I would also like to add that I have often eaten this recipe in a small village in Le Marche, where the lady served it on a baguette. I must say that the result was much better: in this case, of course, you reduce the quantities, but I find that the toasted baguette gives the dish a pleasant crunchiness.
