This dish was a little on the boring side. I added thyme, parsley, and a pinch of cayenne to try to liven it up, but it wasn't enough. We did use this as our main course though. I think it would work better as a side dish.
I made my own pesto, used quinoa pasta (gluten and corn free) and elephant ear kale. I substituted about a cup of homemade veggie broth and the rest white wine and water, I probably didn't add as much liquid as it called for. I also used a lot less pasta (only 8 oz). I thought it was pretty good! Not a show stopper, but I couldn't seem to stop picking at it. So all in all easy, different, healthy and yummy!

This dish is SO good! I made my own sundried tomato pesto, and added an extra tablespoon, but besides that kept it just as is. Everyone had second helpings. Highly recommended.
Neither my husband nor I cared for this dish. I made it according to the recipe but it was bland. It sounded so interesting initially, oh well.
