How to make pesto garlic bread:
Preheat the oven for 350°F.
Slice the bread evenly from the top leaving half an inch at the bottom, so that the bread stays intact.
In a bowl, mix minced garlic with 1/4th Cup basil pesto. Stuff basil pesto in between the slices. Also spread a generous amount over the top, if you prefer more flavored bread.
Spread grated cheese over the top.
Bake them for about 10 minutes or until cheese meltdown completely.
Remove it from the oven. It does taste great when served hot. So, I would suggest this serve hot or warm.
