I was really really unsure about these, but I had just made fresh pesto this week and needed to use my baguette before it went bad, so I tried it, and HOLY COW was I pleasantly surprised. They were DELICIOUS! They were also incredibly easy to make considering the pesto was already made. I didn't follow the exact amounts of the recipe, but rather just threw it all together, so the only advice I would make to someone who makes this recipe is to not underestimate the amount of mushrooms to use, I knew they would shrink in size when sauteed, but I still underestimated. I used about 1/2 of a tub you get at the store and it made 6 small crostinis, and that was pushing it. I will absolutely be making these again and taking them to the next party I go to!
