Meal Ideas for Lent - Pioneer Woman's Pantry Pasta

I saw this meatless pasta dish on an episode of the Pioneer Woman's Food Network show.  A simple, quick dish she threw together using ingredients right from her pantry.  Artichokes, olives, pesto and cheese.  The recipe calls for jarred pesto since the show was about using items from the pantry.  But after the first time I made fresh pesto, I swore I would never go back to jarred or prepared pesto ever again!  So I did make my own pesto for this dish using another Pioneer Woman recipe.  And instead of feta cheese, I used chevre (goat cheese) since that's what I had on hand!
