Pea Pesto Crostini

Today is offically the first day of spring.  What a weekend it has been; clear blue skies, warm sunshine and all the spring flowers showing off their finery.  In honour of Persephone, Goddess of Spring, I decided to make this decidedly spring-like dish - Pea Pesto Crostini.  Simple and delicious flavours.  Take half a packet of peas, one clove of garlic, salt and pepper and a good handful of parmesan and blend together.  Slowly add a good olive oil until you have a smooth consistency.  Griddle some farmhouse bread and top with the pea pesto, garnish with tomatoes, basil and freshly ground pepper, then simply enjoy...
