More pesto recipes

And the imagination on how to use pesto continues....

My daughter loves pesto.....therefore, I add pesto to my traditional white bread for sandwiches for making her lunch for school

White bread

300 g bread flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon of sugar

2 tablespoons powdered milk

2 teaspoons instant dry yeast

1 tablespoon sourdough

140 g water

1 egg


Combine all ingredients and kneed for 10 minutes. Let it rise for 1 hour. With a roller pin, make a rectangle. Spread pesto and roll it. Place it in a glass mold for 1 hour (it has to rise 3/4 of the mold). bake it at preheated oven 370F for 25 minutes or until golden brown.

Biscuits with pesto

200 grams of flour
100 grams of butter
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
water as needed

Mix all the ingredients until you have a dough that is soft and can be molded with a roll pin. Place it in the fridge for 30 minutes. 

With a roller pin make a rectangle. Spread pesto in 1/2 of the dough and sprinkle some parmigiano grated cheese. Roll it and freeze it for 30 minutes. Cut it and bake it at preheated oven 350F for 15 minutes or until golden brown. ENJOY!
