Last week I posted a sundried tomato pesto. One of my favorite things to do with it is to toss it with pasta. It is really so delicious. In this particular dish, I broke up some lasagna noodles. I liked the way it looked! It has to look good, ya know? I also tossed in some cubes of fresh mozzarella. Pretty simple dish…..
hot cooked pasta (any kind works….it’s all good)
tomato pesto (see my recipe index) or below
sliced or diced fresh mozzarella (cream cheese is good too…yes! yes!
Mix a good amount of pesto in with the pasta. You may want a lot, you may just want a smidge. Smidge, I like that word. Then toss in your mozzarella. Depending on how thick your pesto is, you may want to add a bit of hot water….just a couple tablespoons….don’t make it soupy. Cuz then you’ll be disappointed, you’ll ruin your pasta…you will be hungry and mad. Get it?
ok, that is it!!! So simple.
Sun dried Tomato Pesto
1 cup of sun dried tomatoes
1 cup fresh basil, spinach or arugula (I left it out altogether in this recipe)
2 cloves of fresh garlic
3/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
3/4 cup olive oil ( I use LIGHT olive oil)
In a food processor, chop the tomatoes till very fine and crumbly. Add everything else. Blend till smooth.
