Super Sundried Tomato Pesto

As I write this post – I am pretty excited.  I just got back from the house and I am so impressed at the progress the builders made with the upstairs baseboard.  Great work guys!  Also, we received a delivery for the post in the middle of the main floor and we had to check it out.  It looks awesome!  I am getting excited -  can you tell?  OK  sorry for getting off topic.

On To The Food

Who loves Pesto? Pick me pick me!  I am a huge fan of pesto, however I never made sundried tomato pesto before.  My only experience has been with the traditional basil pesto.   On Sunday I thought I would give this a try and see how it turned out.  It was a huge success!  I found it a little strong but I really enjoyed the flavor overall.


Below are the simple ingredients and steps to make it happen.


  • 1 Cup sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1/2 Cup pine nuts
  • 1/2 Cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 Small bunch parsley
  • 1/2 Cup extra virgin olive oil


  1. Puree everything together in a food processor until smooth.
  2. ENJOY!

Zesty Tip: I like to let the pesto sit out for about 20-30 minutes to let the flavors come together. If you are putting the pesto on pasta there is no need to reheat it – just toss it in with the warm noodles and serve.  It is also great as a sandwich condiment.

I am just watching an awesome episode of Criminal Minds.  I am addicted to that show.  What is your favorite TV show?

I hope you have a great Wednesday.  I will talk to you tomorrow and share with you a quick dish using the pesto.

Take care

I love pesto of all kinds, but this one looks especially delicious! I bet it would make a great holiday appetizer with crackers or flatbread. Yummy. :)

Whenever I have sundried tomatoes I almost always end up using the whole jar makes sundried tomato hummus for weeks on end. I’ll definitely remember this for my next jar!

Loveee pesto and love sundried tomatoes! My favorite show? Hard to say but I do love Criminal Minds, Lie to Me, Castle and The Mentalist! (and I’ll admit to Project Runway, Biggest Loser, Survivor, Amazing Race and Dancing with the Stars – thank goodness for DVR!!)

Criminal Minds is one of my favs too, but they almost went to far last night. When the bad guy shot Hotches wife I jumped and then cried for a good 5min. The show does deal with gruesome subject matter, but that was so in my face that I will probably never forget it and believe me I want to! It was so damn sad…….I like it better when they outsmart the bad guys and save the day.
In a lighter tone I enjoy the program called So You Think You Can Dance on FOX. It was a summer show for a couple of seasons and has now made it to prime time. The talent is unbelievable and it is a good family show that exposes you to what a wide world of dance there is out there and how committed these young people are. 8-)
