Came across this recipe some time ago I think it's the best Pesto around. It is super easy and doesn't deviate from the traditional recipe very much.
2 garlic cloves, peeled
1/4 cup pine nuts
sun dried tomatoes
1 medium bunch fresh basil
tablespoons of oil that the sun dried tomatoes was in
- Place the garlic in a food processor or blender. Add the pine nuts and sun dried tomatoes then process until the ingredients are finely chopped and thoroughly combined.
- Add the basil, including all the soft stalks. Process until the basil is chopped and the mixture begins to clump together.
- Add the sun dried tomato oil and process until combined. The sauce should have a fine, slightly grainy texture. Serve with pasta.
adding a squeeze of lemon juice gives it a bit of extra zing
