Five stars. Used spinach asiago chicken sausage and some friend's homemade pesto from carrot tops. Reduced Parmesan cheese by half and used Classico light Alfredo sauce in place of water. Delicious and so easy. Great idea to add the peas and beans in last few minutes of cooking. I used both frozen so added a couple more minutes to cook since I had to bring the water back to boil.
So good!! The only thing I would change is the amount of pesto. Personally for my family and I there wasn't enough, but of course it's up to your taste buds! Also, the amount of water the recipe calls for to cook the pasta is a bit too much in my opinion. I would say use the amount of water you use to cook any other pasta. Enjoy!
I gave it 5 stars as well . . . quick, simple and yummy. A great change from pasta w/ red sauce. I made it exactly and it fed 5 adults (w/ salad) and there was plenty. Perhaps add a touch of garlic we also added a touch more parmesan on top per plate.
We LOVED this recipe...my only suggestion would be to cook the green beans a minute or two longer...mine were still crunchy! I would give it 5 stars...I'll definitely make this again!
I'm not sure why this is getting only 3 stars, its DELICIOUS & EASY! its my new favorite go to! I used Light Pesto if that makes any difference... I highly recommend this.
I liked it but I think I will add a little less pesto and parm cheese next time. It was almost too flavorful and a little overwhelming. Not too bad for us but a little much for the kids.
