I found this yummy recipe for Crostini with Asparagus and can’t wait to try it. Not only does it look delicious, but what a great easy appetizer to make for a party!

My hubby will testify, I hardly ever stick to a recipe completely. I’m always changing things up according to what my taste buds are telling me. So, below is the original recipe and then below that will be some things that I think I’ll try.

My philosophy is that it’s always fine to follow a recipe, of course. But if your gut (tummy) comes up with another idea, don’t be afraid to try it. I have rarely gone wrong by changing an ingredient here and there. You never know what new and fabulous recipe you can come up with by Trusting the Tummy… Give it a whirl…

  4. Serve Crostini with Asparagus at room temperature on a pretty serving platter.

    Sara...I totally agree with your logic and philosophy. I too, rarely stick to the letter when it comes to recipes.
    Now, these crostinis with ricotta and asparagus can also be loved with some roasted tomatoes? Here I go again ;o))...just can't help myself. LOL

    Flavourful wishes,
    This is a variation
