Delicious! Only thing I didn’t do was broil it.

Pretty good. Even though I forgot to put the olive oil lol. Also I used a blend of mozzarella and parmesan cheese.

Easy and delicious. I didn’t have pesto this time but it still worked
Delicious and easy! I made it exactly as it said to and I will definitely make this again.

Hate to ask. But how do u get to other recipes on here?
loved it, it will be a regular side dish for our family, its easy to prepare and tastes great
Made it just as seen. Was pretty good, although I think next time I cut the vegetables a bit thicker.

Mine turned out great with lots of flavor. The one difference was I sliced the zucchini lengthwise, cut in half and quartered it. Turned into a really good finger food.

I love this! The trick is to cut the veggies int equal sizes for an even cook. I did not use pesto cause I didn't have it but it didn't matter, olive oil is really all you need. I also used Mrs. Dash table blend instead of Italian seasoning and it was a great substitute if your trying to cut salt out of your diet.

Made tonight. Our store doesn't carry the sage pesto, so went with the basil. My husband, nor myself, liked it....and we love pesto....and squash. Just not together, I guess. Sorry :(

Really really great idea! I couldn't find the squash and used zucchini instead, the sage pesto is magic! Nice one!
