Sun-dried Tomato Pesto

Today we are whipping up a batch of Sun-dried Tomato Pesto (aka: red pesto).  Pesto can be made in many different ways, and comes in different variations as well. It’s a wonderful combination of basil, garlic, salt, parmesan cheese, pine nuts, (pine nuts can be omitted if you have nut allergy).  

Let your imagination run wild on the endless possibilities of use because not only is it healthy, it freezes extremely well.

1 cup fresh basil
1 cup sun dried tomatoes
½ cup pine nuts
½ cup canned dice tomatoes
½ cup grated parmesan cheese
¾ cup olive oil
3 cloves garlic

In a food processor or blender combine olive oil, sun-dried tomatoes, basil, garlic, pine nuts; process until well blended. Add diced tomatoes and process. Stir in and Parmesan cheese.

So proud I get to use my own potted basil that I've been growing
