    CHILI SPICE's Note:

    Fantastic side dish in a flash! These peppers have a wonderful punch of real Italian flavors. Warm, sweet, colorful peppers stuffed with savory basil pesto, fresh garlic and gooey melted bocciocini cheese. This was a keeper at first bite!

      Update: September 2008: During the summer I have been using this recipe alot and have been experimented with different pestos. Olivieri makes a wonderful Olive Oil and Garlic Pesto and a Spicy Chipotle Pepper Pesto. I am stingy on 5 stars....but this one "rocked my world"!!!! June 2008: Excellent! The presentation was great and my guests were quite impressed!!! I did add a bit more garlic than stated, but that is a preference. I am not a huge fan of pesto....but I loved this dish! I would highly recommend this one!!
