Pea Pesto Crostini

If you're looking for an appetizer or quick snack that tastes delicious, is somewhat healthy and takes less than ten minutes to prepare, then you need you need to try pea pesto crostini.  Plus, "little toasts" are just too darn cute!  There are many recipes online for pea pesto, but I made this one up using a few basic ingredients that I always have on hand in my kitchen.  To make things even easier, I bought a bag of pre-sliced crostini from Whole Foods - so easy! 





Ingredients:
One 16oz bag of frozen peas
1/2 cup of shredded Parmesan cheese
 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Pinch of salt, pepper and red pepper flakes (optional)

Directions:
Thaw frozen peas as directed
Pulse all ingredients together in a food a processor
Spoon on to crostini and top with more Parmesan cheese
Top with sliced cherry tomatoes (which I did not have) for an added pop of color!
