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.
