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
- Puree everything together in a food processor until smooth.
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.
