Since this is a large and expensive dish to buy from Costco, we make it at home with our homemade Pesto Butter in a smaller quantity.  Sometimes we add prawns or shrimp sauteed in pesto butter, oil, and red pepper flakes.  Another option is to separate the slices and vacuum pack them individually for later cooking - great for just the "two of us".  Slice into 1 1/2 - 2 inch slices before baking/broiling.
We find you can't really over-cook this because of so much butter.  We use leftovers to make avocado toast with poached eggs - something similar to: https://www.fridaysnacks.info/poached-eggs-with-parmesan-and-smoked-salmon-toasts/
