Mediterranean Rolls with Pesto and Olives
These flavorful rolls are the next best thing to "homemade".
1 (1 pound) loaf frozen bread dough, thawed
1/3 cup BUITONI Refrigerated Pesto with Basil
1/2 cup BUITONI Refrigerated Freshly Shredded Parmesan Cheese
2 tablespoons kalamata olives, pitted and diced
1 large egg, beaten
- Roll out dough into 12 x 10-inch rectangle on lightly floured surface. Spread pesto over dough, leaving 1/2-inch border around edges. Sprinkle with cheese and olives. Start at long end of dough and roll into 12-inch-long cylinder; pinch dough to seal. Cut into twelve 1-inch slices and place on ungreased baking sheet.
- Cover with damp cloth and set in warm place for about 45 to 60 minutes, until double in size. Brush tops of rolls with beaten egg.
- Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).
- Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until rolls are light golden brown and sound hollow when tapped.
Makes 12 rolls.
