Roasted Butternut Squash and Sage Pesto Crostini
Today is a special day! Today we are celebrating Rachel from Rachel Cooks. Rachel is expecting baby #2, a boy, in December and today you are all invited to her virtual baby shower.
Rachel is one of the first bloggers I contacted when I began my blog 2 years ago. I later discovered that we both lived in metro Detroit and we were both physical therapists! Since then I actually had the pleasure of meeting Rachel in real life at Taste of Michigan last month. She is very sweet and always willing to answer my blogging questions. I am amazed at how much she is able to get done with a 2 year old at home and suffering from ‘morning’ sickness even at this stage of her pregnancy.
I brought an appetizer to Rachel’s party. I topped toasted baquette with roasted butternut squash and a sage pesto. I love the flavor combo of butternut squash and sage. This appetizer is really simple to put together and would also be a great appetizer for Thanksgiving.
Surprise Rachel! I hope you have fun at your shower. I am very excited for you and can’t wait for the arrival of your little boy!
