Wonderful! I used extra-virgin olive oil, prepared basil pesto, a 3-cheese tortellini with ricotta, mozzarella and parmesan cheese, and leftover grilled chicken that I cut into bite-sized pieces. This was so very good and so simple as well. It's a great combination of flavors. Thanks Kelly for another great recipe. Made for ZWT4.
