I'm not a huge fan of pesto, however, I really enjoyed this sauce. It was a great spin off of traditional pesto. I love sun-dried tomatoes. Not only was this flavorful, but it's also rather low in calories/fat. I used red wine, not red wine vinegar, and I forgot to put in the balsamic vinegar, but it still turned out really good. I'm excited to try it with the balsamic vinegar next time, and maybe I will try it with red wine vinegar instead of actual red wine. This recipe is versatile, and could be good either way! I also didn't have a food processor, so I used a blender. It takes a bit of patience and time compared to a food processor. I had to stop and stir it now and then to make sure it all got blended/chopped, but my blender doesn't work well, and it was definitley worth the effort! I put this over farafalle and served it with fresh french bread and the Easy Garden Green beans recipe on this site. Like other reviews have said, this recipe makes a lot. There are only two of us in the house, and we are gladly freezing the rest of the sauce to use for quick pasta dinners in the future. Thank you for sharing this simple and yummy recipe!
