Creative and delicious. The sun dried tomatoes really shine in this. The one big change I made was to use a quarter cup of the pesto. I am glad I did, I don't think you would be able to detect it otherwise. We made this for dinner, which was great, since it is heavy on the vegs (always good, IMO). Portions are generous - this could easily feed 7 or 8, especially if you are eating it with toast. A definite winner!
