    This was really good, we loved it!! I made a homemade spinach walnut pesto and added 4 roasted red bell peppers, just because I love that flavor combination. Skipped the mozzarella in layers and just added it on top. Used cottage cheese in place of the ricotta and threw in some leftover silken tofu I had. All in all a great recipe that can be adjusted to your preferences!

    Pretty much incredible! It didn't hurt that I had freshly-made pesto since a friend had given me about a bushel of her hydroponically-grown, organic basil. I pretty much followed the recipe, except I didn't have as much chicken as it called for. Didn't miss it. I also used regular lasagne noodles since it didn't seem that there would be enough moisture in the filling to cook the noodles enough. Its maiden voyage was for a fundraiser dinner - possibly daring, but how can you go wrong with pesto? I will definitely make this over and over, but maybe not to serve 80 people again. It was quite a process considering I spent the better part of a day just making the pesto. And I probably would make it without chicken. It really didn't need it. FYI, 6x the recipe did 3 steam-table pans for me. No leftovers to speak of, unfortunately!

    This was absolutely amazing. I made it exactly as it said, but added mushrooms with the onions and garlic.
