Description

I created this recipe based on other recipes i've used made modifications based upon my personal tastes and preferences by adding ingredients like pesto, garlic and onions. This is what I would call the "basic" recipe so add more or less of items based upon your personal preferences. For example, if you're an onion lover, like my boyfriend, you may want to use more! Or if you do no like the flavor of much garlic, like my mother, use a little less. When it comes down to it, you are the one who will be enjoying this recipe. Cooking is love!
