"This was a quick meal that was delicious. Next time though, I will add as much pesto. That is a personal choice however. It was easy, except for the number of pans used. Wonder what other things could be added? Yum"

"This dish was absolutely delicious! I couldn't find any vermicelli at the grocery store, so I had to use linguine. It worked really well. My husband loved this dish too. I will definitely be making this again soon."
