Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto

A couple of weeks ago, I was searching for what to do with too many cherry tomatoes. I'd given bags to my friend Linda and was eating as many as I could. Sun-Dried Cherry Tomatoes, what a great idea!!! The best of both worlds basil and sun-dried tomatoes, Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto.

Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto

1 cup fresh basil, firmly packed
3/4 cup sun-dried cherry tomatoes
1/4 cup pine nuts
2 minced garlic cloves
1 teaspoon balsalmic vinegar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Salt and Pepper to taste
1/2 cup olive oil

Process all ingredients in a food processor until mixed well. Slowly pour in basil and process until incorporated.

Serve with your favorite pasta. I used linguini and mixed a small amount of the pasta water with the sauce.
