Sun Dried Tomato Pesto

I will be the last one to say you should not buy pesto bottles from shops, as I do that myself sometimes. I must admit I always have a bottle or two in my kitchen shelf as it is always handy when you want to make pasta or some other dishes and you need some pesto.

But I do admit it is much more delicious if you make them at home as you know the quality of the things going into the pesto.

The recipe I took for making is from Giada De Laurentis I just adjusted it a bit to my taste.
So if you want the exact recipe just click the link above.

Sun Dried Tomato Pesto:

160 gm jar sun dried tomatoes packed in olive oil ( I used my home made one)
3 big garlic cloves
Salt and black pepper to taste
1 cup packed fresh basil leaves
1/2 cup parmesan.

I added every thing to my food processor and mixed for few minuted till everything was creamy.
I keep in a bottle the pesto if I don't use it the day itself.
