A quick and easy to make starter. The ingredients are ready made and you can assemble and bake this in 20 minutes.

Pesto Sauce
If you do not want to use the bottled sauce available in supermarkets you can make it at home. Blend together a bunch of basil leaves with 1 pod of garlic, some pine nuts or cashew nuts and olive oil. You can make this and store the sauce in the freezer for a long time and use it with some parmesan cheese as a base for any pasta.

These puffs are simple and you make get them in batches and see them gone in no time.

Finally add the parmesan cheese while the bites are still hot and serve.

Be creative and replace the pesto sauce with capsicum spread. For a non vegetarian option, add some shredded chicken sauteed in onion and garlic and replace with pesto.
