Very delicious and very easy to make! I followed the recipe to the letter and it delivers! The pepper sauce is optional cuz the recipe itself is already piquant as is. Just keep an eye on it cuz the rice might burn easily. I say 10 minutes is too long other than that, this is one delicious meal! Thanks, Ellie! "

An excellent summer dish! However, I did double the doses for the dressing. And yes, just eyeball the amount of feta cheese.
I'll be bringing this to a potluck party soon! =]"

Very fresh and very nutritious! What can we expect, it's Ellie's of course! :)
Next time, i'll steam the green beans for about 12minutes as hubby prefers the beans to be a li'l bit on the soggy side but not too much. I also added almond slivers instead of walnuts as i'm not a fan of the latter. "

I am on a pesceterian diet during this Lenten season, and this is a wonderful twist from my usual tuna, black olive tapenade pesto and tomato pasta recipe.

So easy to make albeit I tweaked a few things:
added 1 block of vegetable bouillon, a tablespoon of olive oil and a few drops of water into the food processor. then, added strips of grilled red capsicums (peppers) into the pot of cooked penne and pesto mixture. Parmesan was added into each serving dishes/pasta bowls and a dash of Tabasco...

DELISH and economical and so easy to make for a mid-week lunch. By the way, i did a few tweaks such as shredding the cooked chicken breasts, using Cheddar cheese squares as opposed to shredded and next time I'll use 1 bag of baby spinach and only 1 1/2cups of the mushrooms and I placed the sour cream on the tortilla first, then layer with the Che...
