For the most part I made this recipe as given, but did make (what I thought were) 2 small changes ~ Using fresh mushrooms, I didn't add them until the broccoli was about 2/3 done (I really prefer eating them raw, but . . .) & I substituted lemon pepper for the usual S&P! Still, we had a very satisfying pasta dish, a keeper recipe, in fact! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed for one of my groupmates in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #38]

*Made for Australia/NZ Swap #78* made 1/2 recipe which provided 2 meals for the 2 of us. A nice, light, summery dish with fresh veggies and a heavy hand with the pesto. Served with tomatoes and zukes from the garden -- a good pasta dish which will be made often ! Thanks for posting, Kathy.
