Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto With Bow Tie Pasta Recipe

"This is a recipe that was in my Sunday newspaper and the American Profile by Kathy Dicharo of Bryan, TX. She says: "Where I work we have Food Day every other month when everyone brings a dish. This pasta dish is a simple recipe with just a few ingredients, but it is big on flavor. I use bowtie pasta because it looks so pretty but any kind of pasta can be used. This recipe is a favorite for all the workers!". It is true that this is DELICIOUS and very rich.The article said 12 servings and it is rich enough that 12 is possible but they would be very small servings. We 8 dinner-sized servings."

I grew up in Tucson but moved to Colorado in 1989 and live in a household with my husband, Dad, daughter and 3-year old twin granddaughters. Our 8-year old grandson spends 2 nights a week with us. All of that adds up to often difficult menu ideas to met everyone's tastes. Zaar is very addicting and I love trying the recipes I find here. I like to find recipes of people that I see are still active on Zaar and love it when I hear back from the Chef after I review the recipe. Everytime someone reviews one of my recipes, I like to find one of theirs to make and review as quickly as possible. It's a way for me to find great chefs I don't know yet too! My husband has high blood sugar so we try to watch our carbs, but it is not easy because we love them so much! I was diagnosed with brain tumors in 2005 and so far have had 5 surgeries that have left my eyelid droopy. I hope to have a surgery that will correct that soon!! There is still one tumor they have not removed but my wonderful doctor James Garrity at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN says they will leave it alone until or if it ever causes problems!
