    Wonderful recipe, I did alter it to what I had in my pantry. I used fresh baby spinach, petite diced tomatoes, fresh pesto (I made it the night before), and balsamic vinegar. I must say it ...

    Wonderfully easy and tasty! I peppered this nicely, and didn't add any extra salt. Next time I'll try lemon juice instead of vinegar for more flavour. Thanks for this one!
