This is one of my easiest breads. A touch of pesto and Italian seasoning quickly doctor up refrigerated crescent dough, so you’re ready to roll. —Ann Marie Barber, Oakland Park, Florida

"Yummy! And a cinch to assemble. I agree with previous poster about quantity of Italian seasoning. I only used about 1/2 tsp."

"These were so easy and delicious. Used reduced fat crescent rolls and the amount of Italian seasoning I felt was too much and I used less. Will definitely be making these often and for guests."
