    Fantastic! I forgot the pesto at first, and they were yummy. Then I remembered and pulled it out, and we all dipped and agreed that the pesto definitely adds something. These are a pain to make (as is most things made with phyllo), but I used nonstick spray instead of melted butter and that made it go a lot quicker and easier. Overall, the numminess overpowers the work involved and I will probably make these again. :) Thanks for posting, made for ZWT4.

    These came out great! Ran out of vegetable filling so mixed up some more using chopped dates, pecans and a tablespoon or two of honey and it turned out to be a very good sweet filling too. Sprinkled cinnamon on the sweet filled straws...instead of the cayenne we used on the cayenne. Also before cooking sprinkled sea salt, on the veggie filled. Thanks for posting this recipe.
