"I use this tomato-based spread in place of jelly on toast and bagels. My favorite is spreading it on tomato-basil bagels. I usually place 1/2 the spread in the refrigerator, and freeze the remainder for later use." — Don Ondersma II

chopped fresh basil
sun-dried tomatoes, packed in oil, drained
This recipe is wonderful. So flavorful, it makes a great substitute for other kinds of sandwich spreads.
I hate to say this recipe was terrible because I think used as a pasta sauce it would be okay, however, it would need to be thinned down some for a sauce and more spices added. The tomato paste was way too overbearing in this spread. I definitely will not make this again unless my playing with it will turn it into a great pasta sauce.
Absolutely phenomenal. I used it as a dipping sauce for foccacia and it was perfect. It was simple and quick to make and drew rave reviews. I'm sure I'll be making this one all the time.
This was so easy & so good spread with cream cheese on toasted bread!!
This would be good if it was called tomato and basil dip or use as a pizza sauce, or if you thinned it out, it would be a wonderful pasta sauce. But as a Sun dried tomato spread, you cannot even taste the sun dried tomato part. Dip is good yes, but I was looking for a sun dried tomato dip. I added mozzarella cheese, and heated in the microwave and turned it into a pizza dip.
Not bad. I added way more basil & sugar than the recipe called for (personal tastes), the oil from the sun dried tomatoes, plus a little extra olive oil because as is, it was a little thick. Something different, although I don't know if I'll make it again. Thanks. Jan 13th...I still stand by my changes, but I just had about a 1/2 cup left-over spread with some left-over shredded rotisserie chicken, white rice & parmesan cheese...yum! Hmmmm....I may find a different use for this recipe...
I LOVE this recipe!!! If you like tomatoes you will be pleased with this one. It has a great flavor.
