A wonderfully diverse recipe component. Sun-dried tomato pesto is a great sauce that you can add to hot pasta or use as a dip and it’s so easy to make because there’s only 2 ingredients. Yes, just 2!
Now, 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 2 very different recipes in which I am using this pesto. Both are 2 great Summer dishes: asparagus, sun-dried tomato puff pastry bites and a delicious entrée. (watch this space, recipe coming soon!)
- 1-16 ounce or 2-8 ounce jars sun-dried tomatoes in oil with herbs
- 1 cup fresh basil leaves or large handful
- Add all ingredients to a food processor, including the oil from the sun-dried tomatoes.
- Pulse until well mixed, but still fairly chunky.
