I made this exactly as directed. I had to use sweet red pepper pesto since I was out of normal basil pesto, but actually, I think it was a good choice, really complemented the dish. DD2 came in with a half packet of sliced mushrooms from her flat, and I thought, ok, add them in! This made lots, which meant leftovers for DHs lunch today, he says it was even better, the flavours had really had a chance to develop. I forgot to cover the dish while it was baking, but that didnt turn out to be a problem, it was perfectly moist and creamy. very good all-in-one dish, thank you Weekend Cooker! This was made for made for Make My Recipe tag game, Australian forum.

Loved this. I opted to not add the salt. I used 2 T of pesto sauce and I added a small pkg of sliced baby bella mushrooms along with the veggies. This was excellent. Thanks for posting the recipe.

This was a wonderful dish! I used quinoa pasta, low-fat half and half, Sea Salt Seasoning, World Champion Willingham's Wham Seasoning Mild (for the pepper) and sun-dried tomato pesto. AWESOME dish ~ DH commented on the wonderful aromas while cooking. DD even liked it ~ I'll definitely make this again, maybe for company, as it's an impressive dish. I thought it was a bit labor intensive on the front end, but the end result was well worth it. Thanks weekend cooker ~ made for ZAAR COOKBOOK TAG, February 2010!
