Roasted Butternut Squash and Goat Cheese Galette – A galette is a fancy word for a rustic tart. Around here ‘rustic’ means lazy!
This beautifully unformed savory tart comes together in a flash.
I love the simplicity. Store bought pie crust filled with roasted squash, goat cheese and topped with arugula and pomegranate for a pop of color!
You can vary the ingredients in this Butternut Squash and Goat Cheese Galette a hundred different ways!
How about bleu cheese, cambozola, brie? Maybe pecans, walnut or colorful pistachios! Endless possibilities to stuff this easy pie crust!
I borrowed this recipe from Giada who calls it a crostata. She pronounced it CROS-TA-TA-TA with the emphasis on the T’s and big rolling R’s. She is funny to watch when she does that. Perfect english then throws in this exact pronounced Italian word! Annoying or cute? A little of both…
This would make a beautiful appetizer at a party and it really toteable! Best served slightly warm but room temp would be okay too. If your host has the oven space, just bring it along unbaked.
When it’s time to party, we also love this Wedge Salad Platter for a Crowd !
or this Overnight Cranberry Crush Vodka that makes a great gift!
