Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto Pasta

Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto Pasta
Ingredients

· 10oz. pasta
· 3oz. (1 cup) sun-dried tomatoes
· ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil, plus more for tossing
· 1 cup fresh basil, plus more for serving
· 4 garlic cloves
· 2tbsp parmesan cheese, plus more for serving

Method
Cook pasta in salted boiling water until el dente then drain. Add sun-dried tomatoes, olive oil, basil, garlic and parmesan to a food processor and purée into a pesto-like consistency. If your sun-dried tomatoes are in oil, omit the extra olive oil. If it has trouble mixing, add a bit of hot pasta water (two to three tablespoon) to help encourage it along. It doesn’t need to be finely pureed, just well mixed. In a pan, add pasta along with pesto then toss to coat and season with a bit more olive oil and parmesan.
Serve warm with additional fresh basil and cheese.
