We had this as a side dish to a vegetarian meal, I know I will make this again, but also for lunch or as a snack.Good flavors and one of the few times that pesto from a jar works really well.It also was put together in minutes, I used round pita bread for it and they looked like little mini pizza's,I did add some fresh garlic, olives and a drizzle of olive oil, simply because I like those ingredients and I was sure it wouldn't damage the recipe.

Ah yes, this is a classic combo! Used old Gouda for the cheese - sooo yummy! Thanks Derf!
