How to make Sundried Tomato Pesto Recipe
To begin making the Sundried Tomato Pesto recipe; all you have to do is get all the ingredients together and put them into your blender and make a smooth paste.
Keep adding a little olive oil at a time if the paste if too firm to grind. If your sundried tomatoes are too firm, then its a good idea to soak it in a little warm water for about 15 minutes, then grind it to make a pesto.
Since we have added cheese its a good idea to refrigerate the pesto and it will stay for a couple of months.
