Thursday at The Table - Pesto Pinwheels

And Happy 4th of July!  These little Pesto Pinwheels are tasty little appetizers that would be perfect to bring along to a family gathering or BBQ. They can be served warm or cool and are quick and easy to make too!
Frozen Puff pastry sheets
Pesto: I used bought jars of Sundried tomato and Basil pesto but you could always make your own...
Parmesan cheese
1. Defrost the puff pastry and spread the pesto evenly across sheet of pastry, then sprinkle parmesan cheese over the top.
2. Cut the sheet in half so that you have 2 large rectangles, then  tightly roll each sheet lengthways into a scroll (see top right of above photo)
3. Cut the rolls into one inch/2.5 cm pieces and spread them out on a baking tray which has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray (or you can line trays with baking paper).

4. Bake in a moderate oven 180 deg C / 350 F  for about 15 minutes, or until the pastry is nice and golden. Enjoy!!
