Pesto-Stuffed Pork Chops

Recipe by Caroline Cooks

Interesting combo of flavors. Easy to prepare and guest-worthy.

I followed the recipe but didn't get the same result as others who rated it highly. The sauce was thin and pretty bland. The sauce looked nothing like the picture. I also felt that there was too much pesto in the stuffing. I love pesto but the flavor totally overwhelmed the dish for me.
