My husband liked this, but I thought it was average. I was not sure what was meant by "pesto sauce." Does that mean a cream sauce made from a packet? Or does it mean just pesto, i.e., olive oil and basil combination? I took it to mean olive oil and basil combo. I think this dish would have been better if there were more "sauce" because the half and half was soaked into the dish quickly.
