Can't give this recipe more than a three because it needed a pesto recipe. The taste of the salad is going to vary with the flavors of pesto that can be made or bought so the success of the salads taste depends on the maker's choice of pestos.

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!

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.
