Cheesy Pesto Bread is from Karen Grant of Tulare, California. “I was out of French bread one day and remembered I had a packaged, prebaked bread crust on hand,” she recalls. “I topped it with pesto and cheese for dinner. Now it’s expected whenever I make pasta and salad. It’s great heated up for lunch the next day, too.”

"Has a great taste and comes together really fast. I live alone and make this on individual pizza crusts."
