This pesto is perfect in pasta dishes or as an appetizer on toasted crostini, it also makes an excellent pizza base topping.


Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 2 cups sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, drained
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 cup cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup (packed) fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup (packed) fresh parsley leaves
  • 1/4 cup cup pine nuts
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed and peeled
  • fresh ground pepper to taste

Method

  1. Process all ingredients and half of the olive oil in a food processor.
  2. Slowly pour in the remaining oil as the pesto processes.
  3. Blend until the mixture forms a coarse paste; add more oil if you desire a thinner paste
