A sophisticated sounding dish that uses ready-made pesto sauce as a time-saver. A great special occasion or company dish.

I love anything with pesto and this didn't disappoint. I was able to scale this recipe back to serve one with no problem. Since I have oven going pans, I skipped the extra baking dish step. Made for Everyday Holiday Tag Game. :).
