Try this Red version instead of the standard green pesto sauce to liven up some of your old recipes. It's very easy to make.
- 1 1/2 C Fresh Basil Leaves
- 4 Tablespoon minced Sun Dried Tomatoes in Olive Oil
- 2 Garlic Cloves
- 6 Tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan Cheese
- 1/3 C Pine Nuts
- 1/2 C Olive Oil
- Fresh Ground Pepper
Place all ingredients into your food processor and pulse until all ingredients are chopped and mixed well. While processor is still running add the Olive Oil. Season with a couple dashes of fresh Ground Pepper and a dash of Salt.
Tip: If you don't have a food processor a blender will work just fine ;)
I make this up ahead of time, place in zip lock snack bags and freeze to have on hand ;)
