      I made this for our Christmas Eve get together. Fantastic recipe Richard. I couldn't find the pignoli nuts (or pine nuts) here so I just baked it plain. The green from the pesto and the red from the sun-dried tomatoes made this the perfect dish for the season! I love pesto, but my sister hates it...however, she went ape for this! The texture was very creamy and the flavors complemented each other nicely. I had a two hour road trip, and this was easy to transport, an added bonus! Thanks Rich...this will be a new Christmas Eve tradition with me!

      I love this recipe! I have been making it for years as a light supper, or appetizer for a dinner party. "Mellow" isn't the right word, but it's the best I can come up with. The blend of flavors is delicions and savory.

      I made this to take to work and it was a big success, everyone loved it, some spread the mixture on crackers. This is so easy to make and transports very well, as Yooper mentioned. I followed the recipe exactly, using homemade sun-dried tomatoes and store-bought pesto. thanks Richard, this is really tasty!
