Basil Pesto Bread Rounds

Basil Pesto Bread Rounds created by Kim127

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!

    Very good, we had these with your tortellini last week and yesterday with shrimp Cesar salad, they were wonderful!

    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!
