Dip 1 or 2 slices of bread in the milk mixture. Gently squeeze as much liquid as possible from the bread without tearing it. Place the bread in a 12 inch round or oval au grain dish and cover with a slice of prosciutto, several arugula leaves dipped in olive oil, some slices of basil torta, and a few tomato slices. Drizzle sparingly with pesto. Repeat the layering, overlapping the bread slices slightly, until the dish is filled. Beat the eggs with salt and pepper to taste and pour evenly over the layers in the dish. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. The following day remove the dish from the refrigerator and let warm to room temperature. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Drizzle the top with the cream and bake until puffy and browned, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Serve immediately. 6 portions. Basic Pesto: Process the basil, garlic, and walnuts (or pine nuts) in a food processor fitted with a steel blade or in 2 batches in a blender, until finely chopped. With the machine running, pour in the oil in a thin, steady stream. Add the cheeses, a big pinch of salt, and a liberal grinding of pepper. Process briefly to combine. Remove to a bowl and cover until ready to use. Yield 2 cups. REC.FOOD.RECIPES ARCHIVES /EGGS REFRIGERATE OVERNIGHT From rec.food.cooking archives. Downloaded from G Internet, G Internet.
