Allison's Sun Dried Tomato Pesto

Summer is upon us, and in Texas, that means stone fruits, melons, and all different varieties of tomatoes!  Including sun dried tomatoes.

I’ve had a bit of trouble finding a good sun dried tomato pesto in the markets I shop at, so, I decided to make my own!  And, of course, since the end result was so stunningly beautiful, I also decided to snap a few photos of it, too.

Here is the recipe, just in case you have the same urge I did.

Allison’s Sun Dried Tomato Pesto


1 cup sun dried tomatoes

2 Tbsp parmesan cheese

1 Tbsp pine nuts

pepper to taste

1/2 - 3/4 cup of olive oil


* Place tomatoes and parmesan into a food processor and beat until ingredients are a fine consistency but still crumbly.

* Add pine nuts and beat a little longer.

* Empty ingredients into a bowl and add the olive oil.  Add enough that the ingredients hold together, and basically until it’s the consistency you like.  I don’t tend to like mine very oily, but, that’s all up to what you like.

* Pepper to taste.
