Made for Lauralie's Special Tag of the Week from your St. Pat's menu. Quite tasty; IMO, better for supper than breakfast with sliced tomatoes. I will make it again, too, ND Would be a quick and different light supper. (I did decrease the pesto by half.) Thanks for posting this tribute to one of my favorite author--young and old love him.
