Crostini is a great starter for any dinner party or drinks occasion. It’s relatively simple to prepare, and can be made in advance. This recipe combines savory pesto with creamy goat cheese and crusty, crisp bread. Simply spread over toasted baguette and serve!



2 cups parsley (roughly chopped)

2-3 cloves garlic

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

About 1/3 cup olive oil

1/4 cup parmesan cheese

salt and pepper to taste

1 4oz package goat cheese

1 loaf French baguette


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. To prepare pesto, simply combine parsley, garlic, walnuts, and parmesan in a food processer, then puree while drizzling in olive oil. Season liberally with salt and pepper, mix, and set aside. Next, add goat cheese and mix well until creamy consistency is achieved.

Slice baguette into 1/2 inch thick pieces and spread over baking shit. Drizzle with olive oil, toss, then bake until golden and toasted. Spread pesto-goat cheese mixture over bread and serve.
