If you have a pumpkin from Halloween, try the Pumpkin & Pesto Crostini recipe as a delicious appetizer for your family or friends. Add your slices of pumpkin, red pepper with salt & pepper to bake. Toast any type of bread and top it with Parmesan and lemon zest, slices of your baked pumpkin and pesto sauce using basil, spinach, garlic and olive oil.
Just like their orange cousins, the carrot and the sweet potato, pumpkins are rich in beta carotene. Your body changes this antioxidant to vitamin A. You need vitamin A to see, ward off germs, and for your reproductive system to work the way it should. It also helps your heart, lungs, kidneys, and other organs stay healthy.
