Homemade Tomato Pesto

Homemade Tomato Pesto

Helloooo,

How is everyone this morning/afternoon/evening?  Wow, we are heading towards the end of October, can you believe it??  I can’t!!   Where did the time go??  Trick or Treating time is just a few days away. 🙂 I personally have no idea. But I am hoping as we are slowly heading towards the end of the year, that next year will be a much happier one for me and my family, and for everyone around the world.

I was making Pasta and Rice for lunch on Saturday and wanted to top it off with something other than sauce.  Actually, I do have a delicious Lemon Sauce recipe but I didn’t have lemons on hand so I made Tomato Pesto with some tomatoes that I picked up a few days ago,  which I absolutely love.  Now, that I think of it I think my next post might just be the Lemon Sauce for Pasta.  Not sure will have to check if I have all the ingredients. hehehhe

I don’t really like to add Basil into my recipes, because I find the taste and smell to be a bit intense. But I did add just a few pieces of Basil into this recipe.  (Now if you enjoy the intense taste then go ahead and add as much as you want) Maybe this is one of the reasons I do not eat Garlic. 

My husband doesn’t like to eat Pesto, so this was a nice opportunity for me to make something I truly enjoy.  I always add a few fresh tomatoes when making my Pesto, and beat it just a few minutes more so that they can combine with the sun dried tomatoes.  You might just like this recipe…a bit different but still tastes gooddddd!!!

 

Wishing everyone a lovely day and a good week!!
