    Awesome and unique deviled eggs! I really enjoyed these and will make again. I dont think they needed the salt/pepper but I added a touch anyway. Thanks!

    Very good. A great change from regular deviled eggs. Thanks for posting.

    Oh my. I've found my new favorite when it comes to deviled eggs! I never would have considered adding pesto, but boy am I glad that I have smart folks like you to turn to when I need my eyes opened! This couldn't have been more simple and wonderful, and as my husband only tolerates pickles and/or relish for a very short time (he thinks I don't see him picking them out about halfway through anything they are in) this is perfect for him as well. This is absolutely going in my book permanently and will be made at all future opportunities in which deviled eggs are necessary. Thanks so much!

    Wonderful eggs! I made several types of deviled eggs for Easter and everyone loved these. Simple to stir together. The pesto and parmesan won me over, and I'm a plain old deviled egg fan. Thanks, Caroline, for sharing the recipe!

<p><br />I love to cook, read and try new recipes. Marketing professional by education and business experience, but wrote cooking feature articles and a recipe column in the past--when my 2 sons were young. Also, owned a book shop for 5 years; carried lots of cookbooks; and, of course-- had to have one of each. LOL! Invited cookbook authors to signing events and would make some of their recipes for customers to sample. <br /><br />My philosphy is-- <br /><br />LIFE IS NOT A JOURNEY TO THE GRAVE WITH THE INTENTION OF ARRIVING SAFELY IN A PRETTY AND WELL-PRESERVED BODY, BUT RATHER TO SKID IN BROADSIDE, THOROUGHLY USED UP, TOTALLY WORN OUT, AND LOUDLY PROCLAIMING, WOW! WHAT A RIDE! <br /><br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/purplechefhat.gif alt= /> <img
