Pesto Chicken Penne Casserole
This was a very simple and tasty dish. I only made two small changes. I halved the pesto because the pesto at my store comes in 7oz containers and most people said they halved it anyway. I also used diced tomatoes, but that's only because I grabbed the wrong can and didn't notice until I had already poured it in the bowl. I don't know what it tastes like with all 15oz of pesto and crushed tomatoes but it was just fine with only 7oz of pesto and diced tomatoes. Also, this dish was very big. I had to pour it into a 9x13 casserole dish AND an 8x10 casserole dish. I had a party with 10 people and the 8x10 went untouched and there was about 1 serving left in the 9x13. If you're making this for a family of 4 or 5 you will definitely want to halve the recipe. I didn't give it five stars because it didn't "Wow Me!". It was very good and I'll definitely make it again!

Spinach and Orzo Salad
This salad was oh so yummy! I toasted the pine nuts because, as with all nuts, it brings out the essential oils and gives the dish a better flavor. My only complaint with this salad was that the ratio of orzo to spinach is not what I thought it would be. In the picture it looks like more spinach, however, my final dish was predominately a pasta dish with spinach in it. Also, the size of the dish was huge. I had a party with 10 people and half of the salad was still left. I used it as a side dish though; if it was served as an entrée the number of servings would be more accurate. I will definitely make this dish again. I will make it smaller though and adjust the pasta ratio though to make it more of a salad. I might try to add olives and possibly sundried tomatoes, as others had suggested, to give it a little boost. Overall: You don't want to pass this easy yet delicious dish up!

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.

Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
