    I didn';t try this reicpe but after looking at the calories I won't. Almost 400 caloires. I can eat a veggie burger for way less calories and be completely satistifed. I can add tons of veggies and a bun for less than 300 calories. - 8/20/13

    The burger was pretty dry and needed extra pesto for moistness. I would not make it again because the calories outweigh the benefits. - 7/14/14

  • I made this for a family get together and they loved it! I had to leave the cheese off, I'm not able to eat dairy, so that did cut a few calories off! - 7/14/14

    Sounds good but I will not eat cheese(I love cheese)and would not eat the bun even though it is WW.I have a long ways to go with my weight loss program so am trying to eat healthier.Also I don't care for cooked tomatoes but like tomato sauce so will make this with the basil pesto instead. - 8/20/13
