very awesome. 1 cup of pesto doesn't sound like a lot but it goes a long way! I love the veggies in with the pasta. I made a few adjustments because of lack of a couple ingredients but overall very tasty. Will definitely make again. Read More

I was looking for something with chicken and asparagus WOW! What a find!!! Full of flavor. Had to sub green peppers because that's what I had next time will use what recipe calls for. Hubby loved it kept asking if I had saved it...as he was devouring it. Watch amount of oil from sun dried-tomatoes used can become oily. Very easy to make on a lazy day and will certainly be making this again thank you for a wonderful recipe. Read More

I have made this dish several times with variations of the sun dried tomatoes with sundried tomato pesto if that's the only option at the grocer. It always turns out great! It's good hot or cold or even without chicken if you're a vegetarian. It is a regular menu item in my kitchen. Read More
