Ziti with Tomato-Pesto Sauce Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 2)
Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2008
This is a great quick low calorie pasta dish. I normally like to make my own sauce but an easy dinner is nice once in a while. Also I bought Victoria basil-tomato sauce and pesto sauce. And they were both very good. The pesto was perfect. It was not overwhelming but you could taste the flavor. I melted mozzarella on my husband's dinner and with mine, I rounded out the dinner with a nice salad.

quick and easy but not fantastic. I guess you have to start out with a really good canned/jarred sauce.

The pesto made the tomato sauce seem greasy. Plus, the pesto flavor was drowned out by the tomato sauce. I won't be making this again.

It never occured to me to add pesto sauce to plain old spaghetti sauce - the results are wonderful. Though you can't really taste the pesto, it really adds another layer flavor. I did change a few things. First, I browned and crumbled some sweet Italian sausage, then added some fresh mushrooms. Once that was all cooked, I add two cans of plain spaghetti sauce and almost a whole container of pesto. Once the pasta was cooked, I threw it all in a casserole, topped with cheese and baked for 20 minutes or so. My husband doesn't usually comment on pasta dishes - this one he did, repeatedly!

Fantastic sauce idea! It's perfect when I don't feel like making a sauce from scratch. I add fresh, chopped portobello mushrooms to the sauce and let it simmer for a few hours before serving.
