    Tisme's Note:

    I went to a market and bought some lovely pesto sauce, which the family loved. The market being so far away and the price or the pesto, meant I had to come up with something myself. So I did and the family love this even more. I have made it both with without the pine nuts, and it tastes great either way. This sauce can be chilled and served as a dip or spread on focaccia, fresh rolls or mountain bread...... our favourite is heated and stirred through pasta. This is so quick and easy and would be great with chicken or meat.. Freezers well also!!!!!!

    1. 1
      Put the pine nuts, parmesan cheese, basil, garlic,sugar, herbs and salt in a food processor and blend. Gradually add the oil and water until mixed to a thick paste. ( I dont make mine too smooth we like it coarse).
    2. 2
      Fold the chopped sundried tomatoes into the mixture and mix well, or put the tomatoes into the processor with the other infredients and give a quick wizz.

      Tis, this is superb!!!! It has such a depth of flavour and makes you come back for more and more and more. :) It is easy and quick to make and tastes so good, way better than store bought! I, too left this pesto quite chunky and also didnt add all the liquid as I wanted more of a spreadable consistency. Apart from leaving out the sugar and salt I stuck to your recipe and it was perfect! I will surely make this again! THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing another winner with us!

      *Reviewed for Edition 8 Make My Recipe Tag Game in the Aussie Forum* Great recipe! Easy to make and such wonderful flavour. I left my pesto a bit chunky and it was totally delish on crackers and pasta. I made a double batch and have some for later in the fridge. Photo to be posted. Thanks Tisme for another wonderful recipe :)

      Tisme, this is a lovely recipe for a very tasty pesto, simple and delicious. I made double the amount because I knew we'd use it very quickly! I ended up making mine quite fine, but will try for a chunkier result next time. I wouldn't change a thing, it's so good. I took your advice and cooked some rigatoni, and then tossed it in the pesto.. mm, we loved it, DH especially complimented me on such a simple but superb supper dish. Thank you Tisme!
