This has many ingredients that my family loves. I was excited to try it. The directions are very well written now. For my family they loved this. For me the taste of blue cheese overwhelmed the other flavors I was wanting to taste like the pesto, tomato, cheddar cheese. If you are making this recipe and aren't sure if you want a lot of blue cheese flavor, I would cut the bleu cheese in half. Made for PRMR
