    In a large nonstick skillet heat oil over medium high heat and cook mushrooms and garlic, stirring often for about 8 minutes or until golden and liquid is evaporated. Add vegetable broth and pesto and simmer for about 3 minutes. Add to farro and toss to combine.
  3. Step 3

    Stir in tomatoes, feta and herbs and toss to coat well.
