      Easy to increase or reduce portions. Pretty, definitely healthy! I used whole wheat just as posted here. Did add hot water to the pesto aspect but still had difficulty getting it to smooth out, so I used my fingers to spread it evenly through the pasta. Thank you Heartsong for posting. Made for Fall PAC.
