I used half the amount of pasta and half the oil, but kept everything else the same. The result was so flavorful and pretty. The diced tomatos were so wonderful and I somehow managed to make the pesto perfectly. Wow, I served this with grilled chicken and my husband and I loved it. My son ate his chicken with barbecue sauce and mashed potatos because pesto really isn't his thing.
As you can see by the picture it was very good! Makes your mouth water. I used 4 ounces of cheese and skipped the salt! The tomatoes did make it quite refreshing. Thanks Marie for posting!
