  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/200°C fan   
  2. Cut deep splits into the ciabatta, ensuring that you don’t cut all the way through
  3. Mix the butter, Pesto, garlic, parsley and a generous pinch of salt in a bowl. Add the Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Mozzarella
  4. Generously spread the mixture into each slit, then wrap the whole ciabatta in foil, place on a baking tray and put in the oven. After 5 minutes, open up the foil and cook for a further 3 minutes
