Upon reading the other reviews first, I increased both the pesto and sour cream to a cup and added Italian seasoning. It turned out great.

I substituted boursin garlic & fine herbs for the sour cream and used basil pesto and it was delicious!! Just a little fresh ground pepper and dinner was ready in about ten minutes.

Very good! I added 1 cup of sour cream and one 8 oz. jar of pesto to add more flavor. Also added Italian seasoning, chopped onion and garlic. A quick, easy meal and very tasty.

this was super easy to make, and fast too. the only thing is that it was really bland, and I had to add alot of seasoning to this. but with the seasoning it came out great!

My toddler really enjoyed this easy and quick meal. Plus I used pesto that has superfoods in it like Kale.

My first time making anything with pesto! Amazing taste and incredibly easy to make...

I used red pesto
