This is delicious! I did not use the sun dried tomatoes because I did not have any. I used an entire package of crimini mushrooms and a few shitakes I had on hand and cubed them into small pieces to match the size of the pasta I used which was orzo. I made my own pesto using the sicilian pesto recipe (also cooking light available on this site). This is a restaurant quality side item..yum!
