  • 0 3/4 cup Sun-Dried Tomatoes
  • 0 1/4 cup Tap Water
  • 0 3/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 16 tbsp Basil
  • 0 1/4 cup Dried Pine Nuts
  • 0 3/4 oz Romano Cheese
  • 1 clove Garlic


A tasty twist on the classic Bail Pesto, this sauce can be mixed with sour cream or cream cheese for a tasty dip.  Found near the produce section of the supermarket, dry-packed sun-dried tomatoes are much less expensive and fresher tasting than oil-packed ones.  Each serving is 3 Tbsp.
  1. Combine sun-dried tomatoes and 2 cups boiling water in a bowl; let stand until tomatoes are pliable, about 10 minutes. Drain; squeeze out excess liquid.
  2. Combine tomatoes, 1/4 cup water, oil, 1/2 cup packed basil leaves, pine nuts, Romano cheese and garlic in a blender, pulse until fairly smooth. Serve immediately or refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 1 week.
