    This actually turned out pretty well, and I will definitely make this again. My only complaint is that I had trouble grinding up the basil leaves, so next time I might just buy pesto instead of making my own.

    This recipe is amazing! I put whole basil leaves and more cheese in the second layer and it turned out fantastic! I will definetely be making this again, and again.
