Spinach, Feta & Garlic Pesto Flat Bread

Sunday, March 16, 2014


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. For my St. Patrick's Day flat bread, I had fun using shamrock and other festive {green} toppings.

Traditional pesto is intense and, as I guessed, you don't even notice that the spinach is in there because the other flavors {basil, garlic and pine nuts} dominate.

I'm a fan of pistou, the French version of pesto, because it doesn't have pine nuts. The sauce is light and doesn't overpower the pasta. Made without chicken, this pistou pasta would also make a yummy side dish.

This sauce is excellent on pizzas and pastas! It is from the French line of pestos - pistou - and is lighter than traditional Italian pestos because it does not have pine nuts.
