I think homemade roasted veggies and chicken are so comforting and one of my favorites to make at home. If your family loves pesto, this easy dinner is a must-try. My kids were telling me last night as we ate it that “Everything tastes better with pesto, even vegetables.”
This is such a delicious, quick, and easy dinner idea!
There are so many variations for this pesto bake, including sliced Italian sausage and peppers (and even sliced pork tenderloin instead of chicken). I like that you can just grab veggies from the fridge that need to be used up as well.
It’s hard to know what 1 serving size is on some of these recipes. Would you say by ounces, like 6oz? Or 1.5 cups?
Great question! It’s about 1 1/4 cups per serving!
