If you have a Bundt pan, you can make a fancy looking ring of pull-apart rolls without any more effort than plain old regular rolls (have I mentioned that I love my Bundt pan?). I like to add olives, but feel free to be creative… a few tablespoons of sliced, sun dried tomatoes and perhaps a sprinkle of freshly grated parmesan cheese would work just as well.
