Home Made PESTO BREAD - Basil at it's Best!

I have an herb garden and I've planted a ton of my favorite herbs but for some reason my basil plants always grow like weeds. That's really nice if you're a big basil fan but, though I like a little basil too much of it and too often is not to my tastes. This does not apply to lemon basil which I use all the time - but the Genovese basil is something I use sparingly.

I give a lot away but there's still a ton left so I decided to make this Pesto Bread recipe - I don't like pesto as a pasta topping but I do like it as an accent on certain proteins and I love it on bread! The recipe for Pesto Bread is simple enough, toss in your basil, pine nuts, olive oil, some parmesan and garlic, mash it all up in a food processor and brush it on a baguette and toast it in a broiler and munch away!

Buon Appetito! Enjoy!

  1. mmmmmm....sounds delicious. Do you have an online source where you get your pine nuts (pinenuts)? Mine is www.wholesalepinenuts.com.

    Thanks for the great bread tip.

  2. I get mine at Trader Joe's, they're always nice and fresh and reasonably priced.
