Ciabatta toast is a perfect choice for breakfast. It is a delicious airy bread made with yeast. It is often used to make the famous panini sandwiches. I chose the ciabatta toast recipe with the pesto sauce, healthy sun-dried tomatoes, and dry-cured ham. You can always buy the pesto sauce, but, as always, it is way better and tastier when you make it at home. All you need is garlic, basil, oil, and pinions (pine nuts). Pesto is a great addition to many dishes that include various types of pasta. Besides pesto, I used the tomatoes in this dish, but the sun-dried version. It is very healthy, nutritious, and tasty.
