I bought all of the ingredients blindly and then realized that I wouldn't want to make that much of this dish. I made a mini version with just one breast to try it out and it was just o.k. I used parm cheese and purchased pesto sauce. If you like American Italian food then you may like this but I just found it rather one-dimensional

Good recipe,Barb. Made my own pesto with the abundance of basil in my yard and that made it even better. Loved the squash with this - used zucchini, my favorite. Very easy to do and very tasty. Thanks for sharing.
