    I made exactly to recipe but added tomato&basil sauce to pesto sauce and the sour cream I just added more because I have a bigger family. It came out delicious we love it and then I added cheese to it to make it more yummy  -  30 Mar 2019  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Bland, bland, bland. You have to add so much to this to get it to taste at all.  -  22 Jul 2018  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
