Good and easy to assemble for a quick snack. Do watch the cooking time as mine overcooked a bit.

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.

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!
