These are great. I served them last Christmas and didn't have any leftover. I didn't even serve them with the pizza sauce.
I just made this tonight and neither my husband nor my 9 year old really cared for it. I personally thought they were okay but it wasn't something I would make again or if I had them at a dinner party it wasn't something I would ask the host for the recipe for.
I substituted some home-roasted red peppers in these. Delicious with the pizza sauce, or with soup or chili. Use good quality pesto--it makes all the difference!
One of my favorite appetizer recipes to share with friends! I'm making it tonight for a New Year's party. :-)
We made these for a family Christmas gathering and everyone loved them. I didn't have the roasted red peppers, so I substituted fresh red pepper that I sauted before adding to the filling mexture!
