How to make a prosciutto-pesto baguette


Prosciutto-Pesto Baguette 




Pesto Sauce ( you can make it from scratch but the one used here was store bought)


Cheese ( I don’t add any because I’m lactose intolerant but feel free to add some since it will probably make it even more delicious!)


Twine Rope

Parchment Baking Sheet



  1. Slice the baguette in halve to get two pieces then slice each piece horizontally to make into a sandwich.
  2. Spread the pesto sauce generously to both sides, layer several pieces of prosciutto and add the arugula.
  3. Wrap baguette with the parchment baking sheet and use the twine rope to keep it together.
