Pesto & Roasted Garlic Bread

As I posted a couple weeks ago, I'm the proud new owner of a bread maker. I've used it quite a bit and this is, by far, one of the best things I've made with it. It's so yummy and goes great with pasta (like my Lasagna Roll Ups!).

Pesto & Roasted Garlic Bread
Makes one 1 1/2lb loaf

1 1/4 cup water, room temperature
2 tbsp evoo
1/4 cup pesto
3/4 tsp sea salt
1 tsp granulated sugar
3 1/2 cups bread flour
1 3/4 tsp yeast
1 head of garlic, roasted* and mashed

1. Add the water through yeast into your bread machine. Choose 1 1/2lb loaf and medium crust. When the 'add-in' chime sounds, add in the garlic. Let your bread maker do its magic! Enjoy!!

*Roasting garlic is super easy! Cut the top 1/4 inch off a head of garlic, place on a small piece of foil and drizzle with a little evoo. Wrap the foil around the garlic and place in a 400 degree oven. Roast for 30-45 minutes (until cloves are super soft), remove and squeeze the roasted garlic cloves out. Easy peasy!
