    I have just made this dish and the flavours are amazing using the vegie stock and pre made pesto. There isn't enough water to cook the pasta through so a bit extra is needed. I also threw in some cherry tomatoes and didn't add the salt due to the high salt content in the vegie stock. With a bit of tweaking.....very nice.
