This turned out fantastic. My husband raved!. Next time I might try adding a little more sun-dried tomatoes and maybe some artichoke hearts...

Of all the recipes that I've tried on allrecipes.com, this one has to rate as the tastiest. The pesto flavor comes out well but is not overpowering. I put the feta cheese on a little too early, but that just added to the tanginess of the sauce. I highly recommend this. Thanks, Lisa!!

This was pretty good but not my favorite. Maybe I did something wrong but I had to add a lot of spices. Family said it was ok!
