Pesto Monkey Bread

If you are a fan of pesto, then you will love this recipe.  I made it with the homemade pesto I prepared using the basil in our herb garden, but it can just as easily be made using store-bought pesto.  This pesto monkey bread would be perfect with a pasta dish, with a bowl of tomato soup, or just as a snack or appetizer.  It would also be great for tailgating.  Oh, and I should mention that it is super easy because you use biscuit dough from the dairy section of your grocery.  It is a win-win in every way, and I think you will really like it.
