READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by MPCook

I can't remember where I got this from. I just know that it was one of the first I made to impress my now husband. I just recently found it in my box o' recipes and thought I might share. This can be grilled, baked, broiled, etc. and will turn out great.

PAC Fall 2007 ~ I didn't have any pesto sauce, so added a good bit of dried basil, some more olive oil and roasted and crushed pine nuts. Don't have a grill so cooked them up in a cast iron skillet on top of the stove in all the marinade. Really enjoyed this. Served over noodles.
