These make an excellent appetizer, meal accompaniment, or potluck contribution. The bread rounds are very versatile and go well with virtually any meal, whether it's soup, salad, or chicken. The reader likes to garnish the rounds in fun ways--with black olives, roasted red pepper slices, or small sprigs of cilantro.

I made pesto this past weekend and wanted to find some new recipes to use it. This one was great and the whole family loved it. I didn't have Asiago cheese, so just used the Parmesan. I also used whole wheat french bread and didn't bother with the pre-toasting step. Omitted the garlic because my pesto is loaded enough. Wonderful and easy. Will definitely make again.
