  • 1/2 cup purchased pesto sauce
  • 1 3- to 4-pound Pork loin center rib roast, backbone loosened (6 ribs total)

Directions Edit

  1. For stuffing, combine croutons, pesto, and tomatoes. Set aside.

  4. Spoon stuffing into pockets.
  5. Place roast, rib side down, in a shallow roasting pan.
  6. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper.
  7. Insert a meat thermometer into the thickest part of the roast, making sure the bulb does not touch the bone.
  8. Roast in a 325 degree F oven for 1-1/2 to 2-1/4 hours or until thermometer registers 155 degrees F.
  9. Cover loosely with foil after 1 hour to prevent overbrowning.

  11. If available, use fennel bulb tops to line serving platter.
  12. To serve, slice roast between ribs. Makes 6 servings.
