    This recipe has the right idea, however cheddar cheese doens't go with pesto whatsoever. I used Feta cheese and found it to be much more appealing. Feta, scrambled eggs and pesto... couldn't be better... Cheddar? Never.  -  11 Jun 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was amazing. The pesto goes so well with the eggs. Instead of chedder I used parmesan. I added chopped tomatoes also. I can't wait to make again. This was the best scrambled eggs I have ever had.  -  14 May 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I wasn't sure about the amount of cheese in the recipe, it sounded like a lot, but it was great! Instead of the oil, I used an olive oil cooking spray.  -  06 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
