    This was so delicious! My husband was skeptical when I showed him the recipe as he is not a big fan of fruit, but he devoured them and asked that I pu them into regular “rotation”. I will definitely make these again.

    My husband and I thought that this recipe was absolutely amazing! Since I didn't have any fresh basil on hand, I substituted my homemade pesto, which worked just as well. A new favorite and something I'll be making often!
