BUITONI® Refrigerated Pesto with Basil, divided
Oooo such a tasty meal...I made the pesto fresh however with a recipe off of this site. Also works great with thin boneless porkchops. You dont have to cut them in the middle just fold it over the pesto like a roll up. Went really well with a simple side dish of rice and steamed veggies.
Fair recipe! Please make fresh pesto! The store bought stuff is NOT good- lacks the flavor and has way too much salt! Pesto is fast and easy to prepare and will make this fair recipe a star.
This was a big hit at dinner. My husband and I really enjoyed it. Firstly I doubled the recipe for 4 boneless pork chops. I stuffed the chops with pesto and applied the rub about 2 hours prior to browning/baking. This may have added marinated flavor inside and out. I used a large cast-iron pan to cook the onions and then hot-seared the stuffed boneless chops for 1 min/side. I did find when putting the pan into the oven that it smoked up--I just added 1/2 cup of water. The water made a nice little sauce to go w/ the onions and pork chops. 20 minutes is all it took to bake. I chose not to add the extra pesto over the top at the end. Watch out for the toothpick when serving. Some recipe I read suggested using raw spaghetti to secure pockets. Maybe worth a try. This is company quality!
I was expecting the flavors in this recipe to be "good" and I was really pleasantly surprised at how "great" they are. I used all ingredients as written, except I tripled them and stuffed and rolled 2 tenderloins instead of using chops because that's what I had. The cumin and paprika are a great touch and the onions were delicious. Super-easy, few ingredients. I would definitely make this again, using either chops or tenderloin. Thanks for the recipe!
Good recipe. I made my own fresh basil pesto. The only issue was that it took 30 minutes to cook the pork, not the 15-20 the recipe said it would. The pork turned out tender and tasty. It was also easy to put together (not counting the making of my own pesto, but if you buy it from the store, it is a quick and easy meal) I may use less oil next time, as it seemed too much.
Great recipe and very easy. I transfered the chops to a baking dish and, therefore, had to bake them just a few minutes longer. Made these for a small dinner party & everyone loved them.
Quick, easy and pretty darn delicious - tastes like you spent a long time on it! I cooked it all in a skillet on the stove top. Would work well with chicken too. Thanks!
Very yummy and very easy
