Tasty and easy to prepare. Used olive oil instead of the non-stick cooking spray. I didn't have canned tomatoes, but roughly chopped up a couple of large ripe tomatoes instead. Tossed it with cooked linguine and added a side of salmon steak.

This is a great starter recipe. I made my own pesto sauce and used olive oil instead of cooking spray. My family love this stuff.
