    A fine recipe

    Frank Lawrence from Alston, ME

    Fast, savory, plentiful, and cheap. Bravisimo! Use 4 tomatoes.. a bit too much on the pasta side. Could also add a 1/2 cup of finely trimmed broccoli if you want to give it a bit more color. You will not regret making this recipe!

    Quick and Easy

    levismom from

    This was actually very good. I think there's enough for five servings. I used 3/4 of the container of pesto sauce. DH, who doesn't like anything without meat, gave this a thumbs up. I will make it again!

    Yum!

    Jess from

    I made this for me and my boyfriend and we both really enjoyed it, my only suggestion was to reduce the pesto to 3/4 of a package instead of the full one it was a little overwhelming.

    A first time smash!

    Marguerite Nico from Allen, Texas

    This was the first time I'd made this recipe and it was a smash hit with the adults in the house. My children are finicky eaters, but they loved the tomatoes and pasta. I used canned tomatoes as I was in a hurry, but added Fava Beans and mushrooms to make it a little more interesting. You could also add Ro-Tel Tomatoes for a spicier kick.

    Could be better

    Darrin Spreng from Switzerland

    Great idea and good taste but less pesto and more tomato and beans would be preferable.
