Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, butter, egg, sugar, salt and 1-1/2 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a firm dough.
  2. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Meanwhile, place the spinach, basil, garlic, walnuts, cheese and pepper in a food processor; cover and process until blended. While processing, gradually add oil in a steady stream. Set aside.
  4. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Roll into a 12-in. x 10-in. rectangle. Spread pesto to within 1/2 in. of edges. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal. Cut into 12 rolls.
  5. Place rolls cut side up in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 40 minutes.
  6. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 1 dozen.
