That’s Amore: Giada De Laurentiis Book Signing

In love with simple, fresh cooking so much you could make out with it … er, devour it? The Greenista Girls have been having a love affair with organic grub for years and recently, Greenista Girl Shubhra got to meet the super sexy Giada De Laurentiis at a book signing at Sur La Table. While standing for 2 hours in the heat in the long line with all her fans, we were served beautiful Pea Pesto Crostini from her new book, Giada at Home. They were wonderful and green … and not just in color. Pucker up and try it at home.

Pea Pesto Crostini

  • 10-ounce package frozen organic peas, thawed

  • 1 organic garlic clove

  • 1/3 cup freshly grated organic Parmesan cheese

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

  • 2/3 cup organic olive oil

  • 8 (1/2-inch thick) slices organic baguette

  • 8 organic cherry tomatoes, halved

To make the pea pesto, pulse together in a food processor the peas, garlic, cheese, salt and pepper. Add 1/3 cup of the olive oil and continue to mix until well combined. Preheat a stovetop griddle or grill pan over medium-high heat.  Brush both sides of the bread slices with the remaining 1/3 cup olive oil and grill until golden, about 1 to 2 minutes. Spread 1 to 2 tablespoons of the pesto on each bread slice and top with 2 tomato halves. Enjoy!
