Goat Cheese Crostini with Pesto and Roasted Red Peppers - The Lemon Bowl

When it comes to party food, I almost always gravitate towards the savory dishes. Cheese platters, stuffed mushrooms, shrimp cocktail…sign me up! This tasty appetizer combines two of my favorite flavors: goat cheese and pesto. The lightly toasted crostini provides just the right amount of crunch to balance out the creamy textures of the topping.

    I could live on pesto and goat cheese alone, they are two of my favorite foods! Fantastic appetizer (or possibly dinner)!

    I think it’s so funny that we were on the same track! I think we should serve your appetizer together with my pasta dish! One of these days, we need to make one of these showers an in-person one!! Thank you for joining in on helping us shower Bev. I’d like to order 6 of these appetizers please! :)
