Rustic Pesto Pasta: Virtual Casserole

**About two weeks ago my cousin, Elena, was in town visiting me when she fell off a backyard (non-commercial) zip line and broke both legs.  Elena is still in the hospital recovering from both the fall and the surgery.  She is making great "steps" towards her recovery but, understandably, actual recipe development is taking a back seat to Elena's recovery**

This is a "virtual casserole" sent in from my good friend Mary.

 I can't wait to try it.

Rustic Pesto Pasta and Baked Caprese Casserole 

1 box cooked pasta
1 jar basil pesto
sautéed mushrooms
pine nuts
grated Parmesan. 

Caprese Casserole: 
2 cups sliced grape tomatoes
generous amount of fresh mozzarella (1 inch chunks)
olive oil 

Combine in a casserole dish and drizzle with olive oil. Bake at 325 for 25 min. 

Sprinkle with fresh basil and salt/pepper.
