Spinach, Feta & Garlic Pesto Flat Bread

Though a thin crust may seem like just a vehicle for the toppings, this flat bread {flavored with spinach, garlic and feta} is actually very tasty on its own or as a simple cheese and/or pesto breadstick.

Here we are a few days before St. Patrick’s Day and my brainstorm image has come to life. You can enjoy your jelly roll in individual slices or arrange three slices per plate to make a festive St. Paddy’s shamrock.

Spinach Rolls

My almost four-year old son has been showing more signs of independent eating but he didn’t even care that these rolls contained two cups of spinach. They have a lovely shade of green so I will definitely tuck them away for St. Patrick’s Day but we will be making these many times before then, too.
