    Substituted canned artichokes for green beans and used 1/4 cup of pesto to 12oz pasta. It was thereafter an easy winner!

    loved how easy this was! I used the pesto "to taste". i an questioning the caloric accuracy in this app compared to the recipe. while serving size is different, if your counting calories, just have a double check. Regardless it was delish!

    We loved it! I would probably use less pesto next time and add chicken.

    Added some tomorrow and lemon juice for acidity. Almonds are a really nice component Thinking about making it cold and with feta for the summer

    I absolutely love this recipe, it’s so easy to make. I made it twice and I prefer it without the pesto. But the pesto definitely added greatly to the taste. (Sorry for bad photo, I already ate almost all of it with my family)

    Basic but turned out well.

    This was a so-so recipe. It was easy to follow and the green beans added a nice crunch to the pesto pasta. It made for easy-to-reheat leftovers for lunch during the week. It was not a "wow," but it was decent.

    Very good, very filling. Not sure on the basil leaves, but might make with chicken and some parmesan cheese sprinkled on top.

    This recipe is amazing! Such a great melt in your mouth comfort food. I only added half a cup of pesto as i just made one serve for myself, but it was definitely enough flavour hit. I didn’t add the almonds or basil leaves as I don’t like them. I wanted to add tomatoes but thought I’d play it safe for the first time cook. I’ll probably add tomatoes next time. Definitely will make again! Love it!!

    Turned out great with abundant beans from garden! Did not use full 1 cup of pesto, just 1/2 cup and it turned out awesome as a vegetarian summer supper. Added some shredded Parmesan on top. Will make again!

    Not crazy about it but VERY easy to make. I added some left over grilled chicken, will probably not make again, unless I tweak it somehow
