    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is a great recipe to make with prepared basil pesto, makes a great latenight snack or serve it with a pasta dinner. To save some time you can broil/toast the bread slices in advance. If you prefer a lot of topping on the rounds just double the pesto mixture.

      These were good, but I would change a couple things. First, make sure to taste your pesto mixture before adding any salt. Our pesto was already salty enough and I wouldn't have added any salt had I tasted already. Second, I would mix in some shredded mozzarella or other cheese to the pesto mixture to make it a little more bubbly and cheesy. I'll make again with these changes. Thanks!

      Great snack! I used Rita's recipe for Tomato and Ricotta Bread instead of the baguette. Prep was pretty minimal. Baked up nice and crunchy. Loved the garlic and pesto flavors!
