Recipe by Mikey's Kitchen
"This is a recipe you can serve hot or cold. A great side-dish or can be a full meal. My kids love this and it's always a hit. You could also add poached or grilled chicken. You can also freeze any leftover pesto for later use."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

fresh basil leaves
mini penne pasta
sliced Kalamata olives
diced roasted red pepper
chopped sun-dried tomatoes
grated Parmesan cheese
I liked how fresh it tasted, but probably won't make it again.
This was SO GOOD. Definitely will make again. It wasn't that time consuming, either. The only changes I made were to omit the olives and substitute green beans for asparagus. I especially loved the toasted pine nuts in it. My dad told me how to roast a red pepper: cut it into flat pieces and put them skin side up under the broiler until they turn black, then peel the black skin off. It turned out great. I might actually put in more veggies next time.
Delicious! Everyone gobbled it all up!
Absolutely delicious!!! Fresh herbs from the garden-yum!
This was pretty tasty, and makes great leftovers if there's only two of you. I was lazy and used prepared pesto from a jar, and I also increased the veggies to a cup of each. I wasn't in the mood for crisp veggies so I sauteed them in coconut oil for 3-4 minutes and then added a half cup of chicken broth, which I reduced uncovered. Tastes good hot or cold. Thanks for sharing.
We thought this was delicious! I did use my own homemade pesto sauce that I had in the freezer, which is very similar to the one in the recipe, except for the lemon juice. Also, I didn't measure any of the ingredients, but I do know that I used more of everything called for, omitting the sun dried tomatoes b/c I didn't have any. I would def make this again~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
This recipe was super delicious! I added more garlic, olive oil (thin out sauce just a bit), cheese and a few extra basil leaves to sauce and I changed most of the vegetables to ones we prefer (red bell peppers, zucchini, mushroom, peas, and onions) but everything together tasted so yummy and fresh!
Made just as directed (except triple the garlic because we are garlicoholics)and everyone in the family (17yrs down to
7 yrs) LOVED it!!!!!
