Thank you for hosting this round up.
Sun-dried Tomato Pesto
I love to send my entries to these round ups. This one was simple to make. Pesto- is an Italian sauce, commonly used on a pasta. I love a basic basil pesto. For this round up, I will be trying something different.
I love making pasta with sun-dried tomatoes, garlic and olives. Simple yet hearty dish, with red wine, and some crusty french bread is a perfect weekend lunch for me and my hubby.
I decided to go with the same ingredients, except olives (I didn't have those in my pantry this time and I didn't have time to go buy them as the clock was ticking for the deadline).
I like the flavour of basil, so I decided to add the basil as well.
It just took me 10 minutes to make this pesto. (or should I say less then 10!!)
Sun-dried tomatoes (out of the jar and their oil)
Fresh Basil Leaves
Garlic Cloves, salt and pepper
Blend everything together . Blend until the tomatoes are finely chopped. Transfer it to a bowl.
If you want to use it as a spread you can add some olive oil while blending. Otherwise, whatever oil sun-dried tomatoes have in the jar is enough.
As I said,You can use it as a spread over the bread, or toss in some cooked pasta and make it more delicious.
I love to use this pesto as a dip with some corn chips or tostitos or with the pita chips.
