Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto is a wonderfully diverse recipe component. A delicious and easy sauce that you can add to hot pasta or use as a dip and it only has 2 ingredients.
This recipe couldn’t be any simpler. Jarred sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil with herbs are blended with fresh basil. The result? You have pesto. This fresh and hearty pesto is so delicious served simply on toasted slices of baguette or on top of crackers for a quick snack or appetizer.
I have a selection of very different recipes in which I am using this pesto. They are all great Summer dishes: asparagus, sun-dried tomato puff pastry bites, grilled vegetable sun-dried tomato pesto pasta.
