This delicious pesto is bursting with flavor and so easy to make. Serve it over pasta. Make sure to use the sundried tomatoes in oil, not the dehydrated kind.


  1. Combine all ingredients and blend for three minutes in blender or food processor.
  2. Heat and serve over pasta.

so easy and SO delicious! much better than store-bought pesto. I added a squirt of lemon juice and used walnuts instead of pine nuts. makes a really great "sauce" for veggie pizza!

Wow this was so easy and delicious too! I served it with corkscrew pasta and a little Parmesan cheese for garnish. The only thing that I added was a bit of salt before pureeing.

This was delicious! I always use raw, unsalted sunflower seeds in my pesto sauces, as I prefer them to pine nuts. That is the only substitution I made when following this recipe. I tossed the pesto with bowtie pasta, about 1/2 cup grated parmesan, and some diced smoked mozzarella, which got all melty and gooey with the heat of the pasta. This recipe is a real keeper. Sorry no picture -- the pasta didn't last long enough to take one. Made for PAC Fall 2007.
