    GREAT DISH. I used some leftover spaghetti and sauteed the tomatoes before tossing them in -- and accidentally left out the salt, pepper, and garlic -- and it was really great.

    Very good and pretty quick to make last minute. I added grilled chicken which I cut up into chunks and tossed in at the end. You can easily make the pesto ahead to make it really quick. A good dinner to make camping. Just make the pesto at home and store in a container and keep in the cooler.

    Very fresh and delightful for a warm summer night . Would go faster if you buy pre-shelled pistachios. I added Italian sausage for my hubby but you could easily add grilled chicken instead.

    Very good! I like that it's a little different from the traditional basil pesto. So easy, and great for those hot days when you can't bare to turn on the oven!

    Yummy! Perfect way to use up some fresh tomatoes from the garden and avoid cooking on a hot summer night.

    As advertised. Easy to prepare and the flavors are wonderful. The mint pesto has a lovely bite of garlic, and the pistachio provides a delicate crunch. All family members gave this meal two thumbs up.

    This was interesting and different. I might squeeze a couple of drops of lemon in the pesto next time. The meal was split 3 ways and was just enough. I didn't bother with the chopped nuts on top. I'd make it again.DD suggested adding some tomato sauce to the pesto to change it up a bit too.
