It was good, not great. The pesto, and I heaped it on, was too oily with the Jack cheese. Next time I will make my own pesto with less oil and use a drier, pungent cheese like feta. It's a pretty basic recipe so could see adding cooked chicken breast and some sun-dried tomatoes to break up the oil as well. Otherwise a fantastic idea!

Pretty good, and SO quick and easy! I think it needs more pesto, however. I also added garlic powder before baking. Pine nuts toasted up nicely. Used egg white on top instead of milk (personal pref.) Next time I'll try it with filo dough. Thanks for a great recipe!

Very nice! I make pesto in the summer and freeze it - so was able to make this for a Christmas party - everyone loved it!

Fabulous! Love the ease of this recipe. I used sliced almonds instead of pine nuts on the top. Everyone was impressed, and noone guessed that it was made with pie crust. Looks very impressive and tastes delicious!

I'm giving this recipe a 5 even though several people didn't like them. They were all pesto lovers but not pie crust lovers. They were very easy to make and looked great. I say they were easy even though my oven acted up and only the top heating element was working so had to flip the pastry to finish the bottom. I also added just a sprinkle of feta along with the monterey jack. I will certainly try these again with a new oven and some different, more pie crust friendly people.
