Cheesy Pesto Loaf

This bread is a great accompaniment to pasta, soup or stew.  It’s a nice change from the usual garlic bread.

1 round sourdough loaf
1/2 cup mayonaise
1 tbsp basil pesto
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
Cut loat into 8 wedges, leaving attached at the very bottom. Mix mayo, pesto and cheese. Spread pesto mixture in spaces between wedges of bread. cover in tin foil and place on a baking sheet. Bake at 400 for 10 minutes.
We had this with spaghetti and salad one night. The only problem was the boys just wanted to eat the bread and nothing else. I had to put it aside until they ate the main part of their dinner first.Tony and I both scraped off some of the spread and just left a very thin layer. We do the same thing with garlic bread, we’re weird that way. I guess we tend to like the actual bread more than what goes on it. A little goes a long way.
