    DeeCooks's Note:

    A friend of mine got this from a magazine and shared it with me to keep me from drooling over her lunch. (We didn't have leftovers for me to take to lunch, though!) If you make the pesto the night before, this is ready in the time it takes to cook the pasta. It's dinner QUICK!
