Background: I first made the Goat Cheese Pesto years ago when developing products for Trader Joe's, it ended up on their shelf as Stuffed Portabella Mushrooms. I loved it so much that I have used it on appetizers (recipes to come) and now this amazing garlic bread. This bread always gets rave reviews, just as it did at Suzi's party this weekend. So Suz this one's for you! Enjoy! xo
