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.

Ingredients

  • 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

Method

  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
