    echo echo's Note:

    If you like pesto, this makes a great pasta dish, especially for using up some of the vegetables from your summer garden. It can be either a side dish or a main dish for supper. The amount of oil required for the pesto is approximate, so be prepared to use more if needed. The pesto directions make more than is needed for the dish, so reserve the extra pesto for another use.

      This was a great recipe to use up the abundance of basil I have. I loved the fresh veggie combination and will definitely make this again. I'm looking forward to the leftovers for lunch today. Very quick and simple to make. Thanks so much for sharing!
