Sundried Tomato Pesto

Use good-quality sundried tomatoes, not those sad, bitter old things you sometimes see. This  is good as a pasta sauce, on sandwiches, or anywhere you want a blast of intense tomato flavor.

1c dried tomatoes in olive oil, commercial or use this recipe to make your own

3/4 c grated Parmesean

1/2 c walnut pieces

2 large cloves garlic, cut in half

3/4 t salt

1/4 t fresh ground pepper

1/3 c warm olive oil

Pulse tomato in food processor until chopped. Add Parmesean, nuts, garlic, salt, pepper. Process until smooth. With processor running, pour warm oil in steady stream until combined. Good for one week. Makes 2 cups.
