    This was so delicious and so fast to make! I used a little bit more pesto (cuz I like it so much). Husband really enjoyed it even though pesto is not his favorite... He's asked to put it in the keep file...?

    Very tasty! We all enjoyed it a lot. I used about 1/2 cup of pesto and wished I had used a little more. Served it with Recipe #283072. We all liked the addition of grated Parmesan cheese too. Thanks for sharing such a quick, flavorful meal idea!

I'm originally from Minnesota, but I have called Denver home for the past 16 years. I have 4 awesome kids (that's them on my page) and 4 awesome grandkids. I'm the better half of a Denver Firefighter I(just don't tell him I said that) and I've been cooking since I was a little girl, and can spend hours and hours in the kitchen. It's my playroom. <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
