The delicious taste of pesto and parmesan cheese fill these breadsticks with flavor.

Prep Time: 20 min (not including thaw time)
Bake Time: 8 min
Servings: 9
Skills: Intermediate


  1. 8 Rhodes Yeast Dinner Rolls, thawed to room temperature
    1/2 cup prepared pesto
    1/2 cup shredded fresh Parmesan cheese


Spray counter lightly with non-stick cooking spray. Combine 4 rolls and roll into a 9x10-inch rectangle. Repeat with remaining rolls.

Spread the pesto onto one of the rectangles. Sprinkle cheese on top of pesto. Carefully lift the remaining rectangle and lay it on top of the first. Press down all over.

Slice with a pizza cutter to make 9 strips 10 inches long. Carefully lift each strip and place them 2 inches apart on a sprayed baking sheet.

Pinch the ends of each of the strips together and twist each strip 4 or 5 times.

Bake at 400°F 6-8 minutes or until golden brown.

The video is lacking important information.
1. Do you let the rolls rise after defrosting and before rolling.
2. What kind of cheese was used? There are a lot of different white cheeses out there.
3. Was the baking sheet greased?
The recipe looked good, but would have liked more details.

Hi Gloria! Thanks for your comments! They are helpful to us. We have tried to cut the length of our videos to keep them fast for this fast pace world... If you click on the "Recipe" you can view or print a detailed version of the recipe. We do say "sprayed pan in the video" meaning we spray our baking pans with non-stick spray. We used parmesan cheese, let the rolls thaw to room temp. before rolling out.
