MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 17, 2014

"I took this to a 4th of July picnic. I served it cold so I didn't bother the cook the peppers. Also , the pesto I used has plenty of oil so I didn't add any more. Pasta and pesto---two of my favorite things!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 17, 2008

"This was good, but the peppers took 25 minutes to bake. The taste will also vary depending on what type of pesto you use. We used homemade."
