    I cooked this for my family and it was a hit. I read the comments before hand and did double the basil pesto. Thanks for a great recipe. Will definitely cook this one again.

    I agree with most of these comments on this recipe.
    Pesto had to be doubled as a minimum to get more flavour
    Sauce was a bit runny.
    I used 400g chicken and needed an extra 3 mins for cooking.
    I used 300g fresh pasta and this cooked in time.
    Still needs something else for some more flavour, perhaps garlic and onions

    This was great for a quick meal. I think it needed more so I put baby spinach in mine.

  • this tasted great once I made

    this tasted great once I made a few adjustments .

    i needed to out double the pesto through it . I used lite cream so I just used a bit of cornflour to get the desired thickness , I put a teaspoon of garlic in as I'm a garlic fanatic and seasoned with rock salt as it needed it . 

    I also added mushrooms and omg this dish was amazing !!! 

    I agree the pasta needed longer to cook , the chicken wasn't finished either but would have cooked whilst making the sauce . I also needed longer than 3 mins for the sauce and did about 10 mins extra to cook the mushrooms and to mix in my additional flavours

  • I tried this recipe. Added

    I tried this recipe. Added ribbons of carrots & zucchini in the deeper part of the varoma. 

    Took a fair bit longer for the pasta to cook, and ended up having to fry the chicken separately after the 16mins. 

    Probably because of the veggies underneath that blocked the steam. 

    Needed at least twice the pesto amt to get the flavour through. 

    Definitely best with either precooked fettucini, or fresh fettucini as directed. 

    It was ok, a bit bland, probably needs some finetuning.
