      So I completely forgot that this was supposed to be a layered spread when I saved this to my bridal shower menu. I didn't have the time to layer it, so I just threw it all together and whipped it up. I didn't give any stars, just because I didn't make the recipe as intended, but it was still great! One of the ladies at the shower had never had pesto before and LOVED it. I'll have to make it again, as intended.

      *Reviewed for Aussie Forum July 09 Recipe Swap* Sounded complicated but really came together quickly. A perfect fit made in a mini loaf tin 14cm x 7.5cm x 5cm. Looked a bit rough as I was inpatient with the cooling between layers....but this really did taste great. Photo also being posted
