Wow. Simple really is best and this is a great example of that! I used only 1/2 loaf french bread and just eyeballed it from there. I layered maybe half of the 7 oz. container of pesto I had, then put a single layer of roasted red peppers on top of that, then thinly sliced (I did not want to clean my grater!) mozzarella on top. The crust became beautifully brown and crunchy in the oven and I was devouring it as soon as I took it out. I even managed to get my 7 year old to try pesto with this recipe. Thank you so much!

Oh YUM!!! I didn`t measure and I`m sure I overused the pesto using #233193. I think this would be great as an open faced sandwich and placed under the broiler to bubble up the cheese. But your method makes it great for picnics in the park. Thanks.

I really enjoyed this recipe a lot, but my mother on the other hand would not touch it..shes not a pesto fan in anyway I learned last night so obviously she wouldnt like it.... but that ment more for me! Anyways I scaled this down to serve two people using 1 mini french bread loaf I made a while ago. I plan on making this again for myself and maybe putting red sauce on my mother.
