Excellent recipe. Easy to make. I prepared these for a tea party and everyone loved them. I used a circle cookie cutter and they looked great. I only used 1 cup of sugar for the glaze and it was sufficient. "

I prepared this last night for a cocktail party I was hosting. They were easy to make, delicious and everyone loved them. Not one left over! The only thing I am wondering is why I had so much tomato mixture left over after I made the 36 pieces. I followed the measurements in the recipe but had enough to do way more than 36 pieces.

This was my first time making pesto and I was pleasantly surprised by the results. It is very tasty, however, I found the garlic overpowering. I actually love garlic but this was too much. I would cut the amount in half next time."

Great recipe. I used 3.25% milk instead of half/half. One note: The basil did not puree in the food processor (and I used the small bowl). The dish still tasted great but did not come out like in the picture. Instead, it looks like mashed potatoes with chopped basil."

I followed the recipe exactly as outlined and although it looked great, I found it lacked flavour and the texture of the pinto beans was too soft. I really wanted to love this recipe but for me, it is not a keeper.""

I made this recipe today and also made Ina Garten's Marinara sauce recipe to compare. This one is much better. I will use it for any recipe that calls for Marinara sauce now. I also added 1/2 cup of fresh parsley (chopped), 2 tablespoons of chopped fresh basil. Great recipe! Grazie Giada."
