      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.

      This was really good Caroline. Totally easy to make, but looked and tasted like a lot more work. The flavors were great together! I had pork tenderloin thawed so I just made a pocket and used that. Next time i'm going to try taking the porrk out of the pan when done cooking and stir in a dollop of creme fraiche (sp!) or a bit of cream to the pan drippings. That's not because the wine sauce wasn't enought, I just thought I'd like a creamy sauce.
