“This makes a really quick meal for us," writes Gary Phile from Ravenna, Ohio. "It's so easy-and the cleanup is just as easy if you line the cookie sheet with foil. My wife likes to add a dollop of sour cream in hers and I sometimes use tomato basil pesto sauce."

"This recipe is awesome. The only thing I did different was to grill chicken breast on my forman grill brushing it with tomato pesto as I grilled it. I always heat my tortillas right on the stove on top of the gas flame and turn them very quickly. After they were heated I brushed them with a light coating of pesto. I served with shredded mozzarella, sweet onion, tomatoes and lettuce. It was THE BOMB!!!"
