Ingredients
  1. 1 (8.5-ounce) French baguette, cut into 18 slices
  2. 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  3. 2 tablespoons minced shallot
  4. 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  5. 3/4 pound wild mushrooms (such as oyster, crimini, and shiitake)
  6. 1/2 cup beef stock
  7. 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  8. 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
  9. 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  10. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  11. 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  12. 1/4 cup grated Asiago cheese
  13. 2 cups baby spinach
  14. Garnish: grated Asiago cheese and fresh chives
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350˚. Place bread slices on a baking sheet, and evenly brush with 1/4 cup olive oil. Bake until golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook shallot, remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil, and garlic for 3 minutes. Add mushrooms, and cook until the mushrooms begin to brown, approximately 8 minutes.
  3. Pour in stock, and cook until reduced by half. Add cream, chives, thyme, salt, and pepper. Reduce heat, and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Remove from heat, and stir in cheese. Place a spinach leaf on each crostino, then top with mushroom ragout.
  5. Garnish with grated Asiago and chives, if desired
