  • This recipe was good I used fat free mozarella shredded cheese instead which didn't take away from the flavor at all so this will be made again. - 9/26/09

  • I made this with salmon the other night and really enjoyed.My husband wasn't a huge fan... thought the pesto detracted from the taste of the salmon.I will definitely be making this again, but probably will use chicken instead of salmon. - 6/14/09
