This savory Sun-Dried Tomato Basil Pesto is really versatile. Use it on pasta or spread on a sandwich.
I put this Sun-Dried Tomato Basil Pesto under the dip category because it is thick like a dip. I did not use a lot of olive oil, but I did include the oil from the sun-dried tomatoes. If you want to use it as a sauce on noodles, you may want to add more oil. Sun-dried tomatoes are one of those additions to a recipe that always makes me happy. My Sun-dried Tomato and Basil Hummus is probably my favorite hummus recipe that I have made so far.
