Reap the praise when you top bread with two classic Italian ingredients. Prepared pesto makes a perfect instant spread.
loaf Italian bread (10 to 12 inch)
cup refrigerated basil pesto (from 7-oz container)
cup shredded mozzarella cheese (3 oz)
Heat gas or charcoal grill. Cut 18x18-inch sheet of heavy-duty foil. Cut loaf of bread in half lengthwise. Spread each half with pesto. Sprinkle with cheese.
Place bread, cheese sides together, on foil; wrap securely using double fold seals, allowing room for heat expansion.
When grill is heated, place wrapped bread on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill over medium coals; cover grill. Cook 10 to 12 minutes, rotating and turning over occasionally, until bread is warm and cheese is melted.
Carefully unwrap bread to allow steam to escape. Separate loaf into 2 halves; cut each into 6 pieces. Serve immediately.
If making this bread ahead of time, store the foil-wrapped loaf in the refrigerator until ready to place on the grill.
