Parsley Pesto With Sun-Dried Tomatoes

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Elanas Pantry

Last night, in the mood for something delicious and healthy (in that order), I made pesto using parsley. I always keep parsley in the fridge –it’s a staple for me, as are lemons and garlic. I consider these types of ingredients the building blocks of good food; hence, keeping these items in my kitchen is a must! Top your favorite high-protein, gluten-free pasta with this power packed parsley pesto –parsley is considered a superfood– and you have a dish that not only tastes good, it’s good for you too! Enjoy.

Very flavorful! The lemon, garlic and other flavors keep this from being too "parsley-ey"...I made a pizza with this as the base plus goat cheese, mozarella, parmesan. Delicious without any meat or other toppings! Parsley is the new basil!
