      This was very good. I did add some minced garlic to the onions as I sauteed them. I used bowtie pasta, and sliced portobellas for the mushrooms and also added some pine nuts for a little added crunch. I also added a twist each of red pepper flakes and roasted garlic sea salt to finish. I used a little less pesto and added an equal amount of fat free half and half to make a creamier sauce. We sprinkled romano cheese at the table. So, I deviated from the recipe but the results were excellent!

      Great and simple after work dinner. I made some vegan pesto and the entire meal was ready in about a half hour. Boiling the water took the longest!

      Delicious. I love pesto, so had to give this a try. I used Catelli Harvest Sun Dried Tomato/Basil spaghettini, red onion and a yellow pepper that I needed to use up. Everything came together very nicely. :)
