This delicious sun dried tomato pesto is the perfect topping for pasta, pizza, sandwiches or even served as a dip! It comes together quickly and is ready in under 15 minutes!


  • 1 8 oz jar of Sun Dried Tomatoes (packed in oil)
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts (or walnuts)
  • juice, 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/3 cup olive oil


  1. Remove sun dried tomatoes from jar and add to a food processor. Pulse several times to break them up.
  2. Add basil, garlic cloves, parmesan, pine nuts (or walnuts), lemon juice, salt and pepper to food processor and pulse several more times to break up into pea-sized bits.
  3. Run the food processor and slowly add olive oil until everything comes together into a thick, but slightly chunky paste. For a thinner pesto add more olive oil.
  4. Add to pasta, pizza, sandwiches, or desired dish.
  5. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
