Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

This will keep covered in the refrigerator for up to 4 days, this makes a wonderful spread over pizza crust, as a condiment or even as a thick marinade for grilled chicken. Plan ahead this pesto needs to be refrigerated for 24 hours before using.

This was great and easy. I used it in "recipe #382074", but it was equally good over toasted bread. I plan to freeze this for future use, so I will comment on that at a later time. Great way to used up my herbs before the frost gets them. Thanks for posting.
