Wonderful! Since we're not huge fans of pimientos, I substituted with sliced sun dried tomatoes! I also added some extra mozzarella cheese to the top (maybe 1/3 cup) and a sprinkle of dried Italian seasoning. Was melt in your mouth good! Making again for company this weekend!

Yummy! I made a mountain of pesto this past summer and thought New Years Eve was a great time to use some of what I had frozen. This recipe was the perfect application! I used Neufchatel and a mix of pecorino romano and parm as I didn't have enough parm. I didn't use quite the full amount of pimentos, just what looked good. Served with lightly toasted multi-grain baguette slices. Everyone at the party kept commenting on how tasty it was (which was true!) Thanks for sharing!
