These were quite good and very easy. I actually used a box of hot roll mix instead of the frozen bread dough and it worked just fine.

Yum! Very easy rolls but packed with flavor! I used the soft garlic breadsticks dough from here, which packed in a bit more flavor. I also used green olives w pimento since I don't have kalamata. Worked very well-yyou can see, and taste all the flavors, and I love the combo. Bf doesn't like olives but that's his loss. Thanks for the recipe!

Pretty good, next time I'll use more pesto.

These were good. I added more olives than called for. They took longer to rise than stated.
