Your thoughts…

  1. Sun dried tomato pesto is one of my favorites. Adding mushrooms sounds like a good idea.

  2. This looks fabulous – sun-dried tomatoes and pasta are just made for one another. I make a lovely creamy pasta sauce with sun-dried tomatoes, chicken and wholegrain mustard that’s always a hit.
