Red Pesto Sauce

Makes about 2 cups

This is a great addition to spaghetti squash, to add to sauces and soups, mixed in eggs, as a “sauce” for advanced plan pizzas, and the list goes on.  It is simple to make and the fresh ingredients make it explode in your mouth.

photo1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes (drained and chopped)
3 cups fresh basil leaves (loosely packed)
3-4 cloves fresh garlic
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese or 1/4 cup nutritional yeast (for dairy free version)
1/2 cup walnuts (or pine nuts)
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
black pepper to taste

 

Put everything into a food processor or Vita-mix (you’ll need to use the plunger) and run until well mixed.
