    Our family of 8 has this often...we all (6 kids ages 15 months to 15 years) love it!!! I add extra tomatoes, fresh mushrooms, and a bit more Basil pesto sauce than the recipe calls for. Also, I use the grape tomatoes that are really full of flavor, so it adds to it nicely! To make it saucier, I just make more sauce! Great recipe and I (as well as my family! :>))am very glad to have come across it!!! The only thing we are disappointed with is that there are never any leftovers!!

    I liked the combination of flavors, but the pesto/cream cheese sauce didn't quite work out for me. I followed the recipe, but found that the sauce combined too thickly...would have preferred it being more "liquid-y".
