      This was wonderful! I made it tonight with leftovers of this pesto recipe: http://www.food.com/recipe/fresh-basil-pesto-272133. I skipped the green onions and just went with the pesto, tomatoes, and cheese. I also brushed the outsides of the tomatoes with olive oil and sprinkled on some garlic salt and fresh ground black pepper. They were so pretty that I just had to take pictures. Easy to make, excellent flavor - we'll definitely make these again. Thanks for a great recipe, Nif!

      My parents make something sorta like this. They put the cheese on then the pesto and grill them. They taste great, almost like a pizza

      A quick and yummy side. Made as written using Speedy Spinach Pesto. This is a keeper and while we loved it as is am thinking it may try using other types of cheese on top. Thanks for the post.
