Incredibly delicious. I doubled the recipe to serve 4, made a few changes based on personal preferences and ingredient availability, and used the open nature smoked chicken andouille sausage. I had a sweet rather than red onion, so I used that. I used maybe...double the garlic? I also used skim milk rather than whole, but used slightly less than the recipe calls for and doubled the parmesan, which I think more than made up for it in the consistency of the sauce. A few extra grape tomatoes, red wine vinegar because I was out of balsamic, and a mix of italian herbs replaced pesto, both because I didn't have any and because I didn't really want to add any more oil. I also added some cayenne & chili pepper flakes. I served it over baked asparagus, baked baby bella mushrooms, and veggie pasta. All in all, a relatively healthy - and very delicious and filling - meal. I was surprised that it turned out so well despite all my tweaks and substitutions.

It needs to be quite altered, twice as much cheese, flour, and maybe three times a much garlic. The sauce won't thicken without more flour or cheese and it's bland without more garlic.

This recipe was very quick to make and delicious! And, unlike many recipes I didn't add much to it, only a pinch of cayenne pepper (I like it spicy). I'll definitely be making this again!!

Wow! This was so good - easy/quick to make, flavorful and I'm sure it will reheat to make a great lunch tomorrow! I used chicken & turkey andouille sausage and had to make a few alterations due to my husband's dairy allergy. I used non-dairy coffee creamer instead of the whole milk, skipped the cheese, and had to find some pesto sauce without cheese as well ( I think the pesto I found had arugula and almonds instead of basil and pine nuts). I really couldn't tell anything was "missing" per se, and both my husband and I went back for seconds and even considered thirds! I will definitely make this again - thanks, AlexisZ!
