"Very flavorful. I used homemade pesto and once used low fat crescent rolls, great either way!"

"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."

"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!"
