    Delish

    Barbara Ann Sansone from California

    I made this for Easter Sunday to go with appetizers. It was a big hit. Very easy. I used a good loaf of crusty bread and shredded parmesan cheese (not grated). Broiled until melted. Very yummy.

    It was okay.

    Sara from

    This was really easy, but I felt there was too much pesto on it. If i make it again, I will put half as much pesto on it.

    Quick, Easy and Delicious. Can even be made on a whole grain bread. A good alternative to all the packaged chips and snacks with none of the preservatives.

    Pesto Bread

    Letha Lampkin from Tulsa, OK

    It was very good. Couldn't wait to take the next bite. I also tried it with a little garlic paste on the bread before spreading the pesto. It was great that way also.

    Yummy, EASY, FAST

    Lindsay Sharp from San Diego, CA

    Perfect to add a little to your to past dish instead of plain old garlic bread. Everyone loved it, my 7 year old wants the "green bread" all the time now, & its so easy I can do even with Mac & cheese!
