"This is a great healthy lunch idea. If packing this away to eat later just place these in between two wet paper towels so the lettuce does not wilt. I love serving this with a bowl of tomato soup, they go very well together."

We thoroughly enjoyed the pesto, delicious blend of flavours! I used the left over chicken from your Lemon Rosemary Chicken Breast that I made last night and it was wonderful with the pesto. I had the wraps set up to take a photo but my camera is being difficult, can't get a picture on it. This recipe is a do again for sure. Thanks for sharing Bea! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
