As a lover of all bread and anything carbs, to be honest, this is an absolute must to complement any dinner.

I’ve done a lot of creative things with my bread but this is one I always disregarded until recently. I was eating dinner at a friend’s house and she made this. I told her how I was reluctant to ever make it because it simply didn’t sound good. She told me to shut up and just try it.

Wow! It was delicious! I clearly have been missing out and you will be too if you don’t try this immediately.

Cheesy Pesto Bread Ingredients

The great thing about this recipe is that it only calls for 4 ingredients: cheese, pesto, Italian seasoning, and the bread.

For this particular recipe, I used a Cuban bread but know that you can really use any bread that you prefer. It simply needs to be an uncut loaf and nothing with tons of seasoning or grains. It will take away from the overall flavor.

Also, know that measuring everything isn’t necessary. You can simply eyeball it to your preference.

I simply provided measurements as a guideline but I’d suggest adjusting it to your liking.
