Kraft Kitchens Tips
Substitute: Substitute 1-1/2 cups roasted red pepper strips for the fresh red pepper strips.
Special Extra: For more intense flavor, stir in 1 Tbsp. lemon zest or 1/2 cup pitted dry-cured olives, along with the peppers, Parmesan and pesto.
Food Facts: Pesto is an uncooked sauce made with fresh basil, garlic, pignoli (pine nuts), Parmesan or Pecorino cheese and olive oil. This classic, fresh-tasting sauce originated in Italy and is a favorite on pasta and chicken dishes. Look for prepared pesto in either the refrigerated aisle of your supermarket, with the sauces and dressings in the produce aisle or with the jarred pasta sauces in the grocery aisle.
