    Sackville Girl, this is a heavenly dish! I like the beans and potatoes in with the pasta and pesto. I think this would be a great dish for entertaining, as well as potlucks, picnics, and just staying at home! The changes I made were: I used a homemade vegan pesto, quartered the potatoes, put the garlic through a press, and sprinkled a shredded soy parmesan on top. Deeee-licious. It kept its great flavor even as it cooled to room temperature. I'm looking forward to trying the leftovers right out of the fridge tomorrow. Thanks for a keeper of a recipe.
