chopped fresh basil
chopped fresh parsley
chopped pine nuts
grated Parmesan cheese
salt to taste
my version: 4 oz sun dried tomatoes, 3/4 c fresh basil, 1/4 c fresh parsley, 1/2 small onion, 1/4 c pine nuts, 4 cloves garlic, 1 can diced tomatoes, 1 small can tomato sauce, 1/4 c red wine vinegar, 1/8 c balsamic vinegar...combine in blender and then add parmesan cheese on top.
This was sooooo good!
There was so much red wine and vinegar, I could hardly stand to eat it. Next time I'll put in maybe half of each.
Very good sauce with Angel Hair pasta! Fairly quick to make and actually has a texture similar to meat sauce. A good vegetarian substitution.
Gross? do you know that is what Pesto is supposed to look like? Omitting the Parmesan cheese is illogical. why? then, it isn't pesto = a key ingredient taken out. Understand what you're making.
I found this absolutely fantastic & creative.
This was great! I added shrimp and bowtie pasta and it was definitely a hit!
Great recipe...Don't forget you can add cooked, diced chicken or pork; shrimp, clams etc...We like things more garlicky so we use more garlic...If you want to thin it out any, use a little of the pasta cooking water....This can be adapted to so many things
This was awesome. I used this to make the Artichoke and sun-dried tomato chicken (on the site) and it is a family hit. This recipe is a keeper! Thanks!
I love this! I had some dehydrated roma tomatoes in my freezer from last summer's harvets. I made a half batch only because my mini-chopper is small. Gross looking, buh? That's what pesto looks like! I would hardly call it gross looking. I omitted the canned tomatoes, because I didn't feel like opening a can for half of a 1/3 cup. It turned out great. I froze half so I could enjoy pesto and bread later on. I omitted the cheese too because I'm lactose intolerant.
