Pesto is usually served as a sauce on pasta and sometimes is used to enhance vegetables. But by far the most luscious way to enjoy pesto that I know of is to spread it on slices of toasted French bread and have them as an appetizer.

MAKES 12 SLICES

12 slices French bread (ВЅ inch thick)

ВЅ cup Pesto or Winter Pesto

  1. Toast the French bread under the broiler on a cookie sheet until lightly golden on both sides.
  2. Spread about 2 teaspoons of pesto on each slice. Serve within 20 minutes.

NOTE: If you want to take this on a picnic, then pack the pesto in a container and place the warm toasted French bread in a plastic bag. Spread when you get there.
