Goat Cheese Crostini


Not sure what has gotten into me, but this rainy weather has
me feeling all domestic and thangs! So naturally I stepped into my
apron (ha! who am I kidding, I don't own one of those) and got
down to business.

I love me a good app and I have been making this one
for years. It's deliciously simple even for the most
challenged of cooks!


Goat Cheese Crostini

Walnut Pesto
*2 cups of fresh basil
*2 cloves of garlic (you can use more if you'd like!)
*1/3 C. Chopped walnuts
*1/2 C. Parmigiano Reggiano
*Salt to taste
*1/2 C. Extra Virgin Olive Oil 

For Crostini
*French Baguette
*4 or 5 Roma tomatoes
*Small basil leaves for garnish

To start: Place basil and walnuts in food processor and pulse a few times. Next, add the garlic and parmigiano reggiano and pulse again. Slowly add the olive oil in a constant stream while the food processor is on. Add salt to taste.

Slice baguette on a bias and place in oven at 350 degrees to slightly toast bread. Next, using dental floss, slice log of goat cheese for thin even slices.

Assembly: Spread pesto mixture on baguette, add slice of goat cheese, slice of tomato and top with small basil leaf!



Happy weekending!
