Recipe by Its loose again

All summer I made pesto with recipes from various sources, freezing them in 1/2 cup portions. When guests come by I cut up a baguette and set out a few. This one goes first, never a bit left. From Provencal Light by Martha Rose Shulman.

This made a tasty spread for toasted bread. Easy too! Thanks!
