Awesome and unique deviled eggs! I really enjoyed these and will make again. I dont think they needed the salt/pepper but I added a touch anyway. Thanks!

Oh my. I've found my new favorite when it comes to deviled eggs! I never would have considered adding pesto, but boy am I glad that I have smart folks like you to turn to when I need my eyes opened! This couldn't have been more simple and wonderful, and as my husband only tolerates pickles and/or relish for a very short time (he thinks I don't see him picking them out about halfway through anything they are in) this is perfect for him as well. This is absolutely going in my book permanently and will be made at all future opportunities in which deviled eggs are necessary. Thanks so much!
