I cheated with a store-bought jar of pesto but the results were delicious.

Excellent recipe. I of course cheated too, and used pesto that I had made and frozen. This was a great new side dish that my husband and I both loved.

This recipe was alright. I felt the dish didn't have enough flavor. It seemed overly herb-ish but maybe needed more salt? Dunno. We ate them with ketchup because it needed something more.
