I made this guessing the approximate amounts stated. I have to say that this is sooooo nice. My kids love it and they are fussy with pasta. There were no reviews when i made it so was a bit sceptical but i am currently making the second batch for adults and will be nice cold tomorrow afternoon. I used pasta shells, pesto and grated pizza cheese from aldi, and ready diced frozen onions which made it even quicker. well done and thanks for sharing. - 15 Jul 2015
