When the weather starts getting cold, I start craving warm comfort food – usually with melted cheese (surprise). Just the other day, I served this favorite of mine to friends that were over for bookclub, and it was a hit. I got the recipe from a colleague, but I have heard that it originated in an old issue of Southern Living.

2 oz. grated Parmesan Cheese
1/2 cup basil pesto sauce
