I don't really consider it a recipe, but, if you mix this pesto with some mayo and some sour cream, it makes a great dip! Otherwise, just a quick sauce for chicken, or pork, or even white fish!
A large bunch of basil
A small jar of sun dried tomatoes in the olive oil (not the dried ones)
A handful of pine nuts
Romano cheese (a little nippier than parm and stands up to the sun dried tomatoes)
A clove of two of garlic
Extra virgin olive oil
Whir the whole thing in a food processor adding some of the oil from the sun dried tomatoes, and then, using the olive oil as you need it. If you are making this for a dip, omit the Extra virgin olive oil and just use the oil from the tomatoes. You may also add a little chopped up sun dried tomatoes, and chopped up black olives on top for a garnish!
Try it - it is soo good!
Cheers to all!
