Cooking Class: "Pesto Bread Recipe"

Here is the recipe for the Pesto Bread we made at the cooking class last night. It is extremely easy to make. Enjoy:

Set Oven to 400º


2 cups fresh basil leaves
1 cup fresh Italian parsley leaves
1/2 cup grated Parmesan or Romano
1/2 cup pine nuts, toasted
4 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup olive oil
1 Loaf of French Bread

For the pesto, combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender. Puree until the mixture forms a smooth, thick paste. Slice the baguette lengthwise horizontally. Spread the pesto over the cut sides of the baguette and toast in the oven until crispy and golden.
