Pesto Garlic Bread

Bread is one carb that I'll never give up. So when I found myself with a lot of bread at home, I had to figure out what I could make with it. This was another one of my "A-ha!" moments. I was so happy that I was able to find a way to incorporate pesto into yet another recipe. Pesto goes with pretty much everything and especially with garlic bread. With a few simple steps, I was able to create a quick and easy Pesto Garlic Bread. It's perfect as an appetizer, a snack, or even the bread for a nice sandwich.

  8. Spread the pesto cheese mixture evenly onto each baguette
  9. Put the baguette on the baking sheet and put it in the oven
