Easy Pesto Bread

By now you know that I am all about making things easy when it comes to creating and sharing recipes. But it isn’t often that I share an entire easy meal from main dish to dessert! The beginning of a new school year can be a little chaotic because of new schedules. It’s an adjustment getting into a routine and the evenings can just be plain crazy. I was thrilled to work with the Nestlé brand on this post because I know that my readers love recipes that make their lives a little easier. And this entire meal is such a time saver! Even the Pesto Bread recipe I’m sharing today is incredibly easy. This is a great meal if you want to sit down and enjoy with your family without all the hard work of cooking and baking.

The secret to this easy meal is these fantastic Nestlé products. You can’t get much more family friendly right here! My kids were in heaven having a STOUFFER’S® Meat Lasagna for dinner with TOLL HOUSE® Chocolate Chip Cookies for dessert and Nesquik to drink.

The cookie dough comes prepared and separated into chunks for you to take out and set right onto your cookie sheet. These cookies turn out perfectly!
