I originally shared this recipe back in March 2013 under my Irish Bunco and Other Ideas for St. Patrick’s Day post, but wanted to give this Pesto and Goat Crostini it’s own page on the site; especially since New Year’s Eve is right around the corner.

Every year I make a whole host of appetizers for us to snack on while watching the New Year’s Eve countdown. We generally don’t have a large crowd. Just my husband, the girls and I and we watch movies, then switch over to see all of the festivities happening in Times Square.

I think I’ll be making this Pesto and Goat Cheese Crostini this year because it was so easy and quick to prepare and would make a perfect appetizer to help ring in the new year. The combination of fresh basil and garlic paired with soft goat cheese and crunchy bread was exquisite. It will certainly impress your guests! ~Enjoy!
