    Parma ham, mozzarella and pesto picnic loaf

    • Preparation time: 25 minutes, plus 3 hours chilling
    • Cooking time: 0 minutes
    • Total time: 25 minutes, plus 3 hours chilling

    Serves: 4-6

    Ingredients

    2 tbsp fresh basil pesto
    3 tbsp mayonnaise
    1 Waitrose White Boule
    83g pack Waitrose Italian Parma ham
    2 x 125g packs mozzarella, sliced
    2-3 handfuls rocket leaves
    ½ x 25g pack basil, leaves picked
    4 medium vine tomatoes, sliced

    Method

    1. Mix the pesto and mayonnaise in a small bowl. Cut a lid off the boule loaf, about 2cm from the top, and scoop out the insides (reserve to make croutons or breadcrumbs). Spread the pesto mayonnaise all over the inside and underneath the lid of the loaf.

    2. Place a layer of Parma ham in the base of the loaf, then add a layer of mozzarella, then a layer of rocket and basil leaves, followed by a layer of tomatoes, seasoning a little in between each layer. Repeat until the loaf is filled to the top, then finish with the lid. Wrap the loaf in cling film, then chill for 3 hours. Slice into wedges to serve.
