Terrific flavourful but not overwhelming 'pesto' taste! Will definitely be making this again!

We really enjoyed this. I used Pesto to make the pesto, and then used organic peppers and zucchinis from the farmer's market. I used a tad more garlic and found that I needed to roast it for about 6 minutes longer than specified. This had a delightful lemony taste that we enjoyed as a side dish. I froze two bags to see how that works and I'll come update when I use them. A delightful choice for my first PAC 07 recipe!
