This Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto can be made in 5 minutes and is way better than any store bought pesto! Add it to pasta, pizza, crostini… the possibilities are endless!
I’m baackkk! Did you miss me?
In case you were wondering why I’ve been slacking on posting new recipes, it’s because I’ve been on Holiday.
I spent 10 fun fulfilled days with my family and friends back in Minnesota over Christmas and New Years. And yes… it was cold. I don’t think there was even a temperature on any day that I was there. Really. -40 degrees… Yep!
If you caught some of my Instagram Stories while I was there, then you probably saw me donning one of those furry caps with the ear flaps… kind of like the ones worn in the movie Fargo. 🙂
Despite the cold, it was great to be back with my peeps. There was plenty of food and wine flowing to keep us all warm, while we wore our fuzzy slippers and were wrapped up in blankets around the fire.
One of our go-to appetizers during the trip was this Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto.
This was super easy to make.
- Sun-Dried Tomatoes
- Parmesan Cheese
- and Garlic
to a food processor (affiliate) and blend away!
We added this to some Gluten Free Crostini Bread. But you could add it to Pizza, Pasta, Zucchini Noodles… I mean really, you could add this to anything you wanted, it’s soooo good!
