Great recipe......maybe a little too much liquid though. Instead of the pesto and sour cream at the end, I made a paste with plain flour and almond milk to stir through, which thickened nicely. My partner, who is not a great fan of "meatless" meals, really enjoyed this dish and scraped his plate clean!!! - 14 Jul 2013
