Very tasty and filling. I did not have the fried onions on hand and the dish seemed to not need the added flavor. There is alot going on here! My husband raved and had 2 helpings. For a meat and potatose guy, he left the table full and satisfied. I enjoyed all the texture and flavors. We will be making this again.

I made this for Mother's Day when my brother and his vegetarian girlfriend were coming over. Everyone loved it, including my mom and husband. Very flavorful. I especially loved the crunch the fried onions supplied. I would probably cut down on pest a little next time to reduce the oil level.

This was delicious. Both my wife and I liked it. I fried the mushrooms at low heat first to get that carmelized mushroom flavor. I substituted scallions for the canned onions and kalamata olives for black olives and added a half a sweet red pepper cut into slices for color and a little sweetness and sauteed these veggies with the celery. I used fresh chopped sage and added it when I fried the gnocchi. Frying the gnocchi, on one side only, adds a very pleasant texture to the gnocchi - crispy and chewy at the same time. I made the beans from scratch and added some fresh sage at the end of cooking the beans. This gave the beans some sage flavor as well.

Great flavor- my husband and I loved it! We actually only used about a 1/2 cup of pesto to cut down the fat a bit, and it didn't taste like it was missing it at all.

Way too many flavors coming together in one bowl... definitely needs to be scaled down. I suggest leaving out the celery + black olives for starters.. maybe do sauteed onions instead of the fried... that might help this out a bit.

Very good recipe. I substituted a diced sauteed onion for the canned fried onions and omitted the olives.

I love the way the textures mingle in this dish - i reduced the amount of pesto slightly, but otherwise prepared to the letter. Great vegetarian option, will make again.
