sweet pepper-goat cheese toasts with arugula

19Sep11

This recipe was a happy outcome of an experiment gone wrong. I was attempting to make goat cheese filled roasted peppers, but the peppers kept falling apart. So instead I decided to blend the cheese and pepper and spread the mixture on toasts. The result is a delicious, summery appetizer.
