Yummy! I love pesto, it always reminds me of summer. Adding a bit to my rice just punched the flavor through the roof! I didn't add the optional cheese, but loved this anyway. I'll be saving this to make again, and telling friends how wonderful it is! Thanks for posting!

As a big fan of pesto and not such a big fan of pasta I found this to be tasty and easy side. DH had what little was left with his lunch and said it reheated nicely. Made as written using a little mozzarella sprinkled on the top. This recipe is a winner that I will be making again. Thanks for the post.

Was this ever a hit at my dinner table! I cooked the rice in my rice steamer, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. We make pesto with basil from the garden, so used that. It was so flavorful and easy to make! I know I will be asked to make it again soon! A new favorite!

My boys absolutely loved this recipe! I did not use the mozzarella cheese and they gobbled it up. Made for 1-2-3 Tag.

When my husband makes his lip smacking sound, then I know it's a winner. I added just an extra tablespoon of pesto, since I made extra rice. I didn't use the mozzarella. Made for Every Day Holiday Tag game. :)

What a lovely simple side, I used about 3 tblsp pesto (the rest of my jar) and I found it plenty, even toddler DD ate this, served alongside some bacon feta stuffed chicken breasts for a lovely dinner. Thanks for posting!
