 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    7 1/2  cups          all purpose flour
    1      Tablespoon    sugar
    2      teaspoons     salt
    1      package       active dry yeast
    2 1/2  cups          warm water -- (120-130)
    1      cup           chopped fresh basil
      1/4  cup           finely chopped walnuts
      1/4  cup           grated Parmesan cheese
                         melted butter or margarine
 
 In a mixing bowl, combine 6 cups flour, sugar, salt and yeast.  Add water;
 beat until smooth.  Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.  Turn
 onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 8-10 minutes.
  Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top.  Cover and refrigerate
 overinight.  Punch dough down; knead several times.  Cover and let rise for
 10 minutes.  Meanwhile, combine basil, walnuts and cheese; reserve 2
 tablespoons for topping.  Shape dough into 32 balls.  On a floured surface,
 roll each ball in a 4 inch circle; place about 1 1/2 teaspoons of the basil
 mixture in the center of each.  Pinch dough together over filling.  Place 16
 rolls each, seam side down, on two greased baking sheets with rolls touching.
  Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.  Brush tops with butter;
 sprinkle with reserved basil mixture.  Bake at 375 for 25 minutes or until
 lightly browned.  Serve warm.  Yield 32 rolls.
