    Delicious! I did end up adding more heavy cream probably about half a cup. Everyone liked it! Definitely a favorite in my book, I baked chicken breast and served it on top. Quick and easy highly recommend.

    Family of 6 and everyone loves it. Especially my wife. I add about 1 1/2lbs of grilled chicken, 1/4 cup sun dried tomatoes, and fresh parmesan cheese and it just disappears!

    Quick, easy, inexpensive, and tasty; What more could you want? Make sure you watch the heat though, or the cheeses from the pesto will stick to the pan, and nobody wants that mess.

    Used Classico Pesto. Felt like the oil that came in the jar with the pesto was enough. Probably did not need to add 2 tbsp olive oil as stated in directions? I had to add more cream as a result.
