Simple and Festive-Looking Holiday Appetizer: Pea Pesto Crostini

pea pesto crostini

A few weeks ago, I was watching Giada at Home on the Food Network and Giada made a super simple and pretty looking recipe — Pea Pesto Crostini. I decided to make it when we had a friend over for drinks and it was a hit, and then I made it again this past weekend for a holiday potluck.

With only 4 ingredients in the pesto — defrosted peas, garlic, parmesan cheese and olive oil — plus some bread and tomatoes, it’s quick to make, and it packs a surprising amount of flavor in every bite. It also has a great festive red and green palate and looks really pretty sitting out on a plate or board.

Check out the original recipe. I’ve already used it twice and will likely use it again.
