Rucola Pesto with Sun Dried Tomatoes

Hey there!!

How is everyone? Looking forward to the weekend?  I surely am!! Definitely in need of  some R&R and fast. 🙂   My first lesson started very early in the morning, so by the time I was able to take a break it was lunch time, and I was starving. 🙂  It has been some what of a challenging week, but I am still going strong, tired but strong. 🙂  

I had planned before hand what I wanted to have for lunch, it was going to be Rice with Rucola Pesto.  Sound interesting to you???  I went to the kitchen took out my pots and pans and got to work. I went ahead and boiled the rice, while preparing the Pesto. I had already shopped for Rucola, and Parsley a few days ago, so there was no need to run out to the market to shop for any of the ingredients. 

I  love Pesto!!! I prefer Tomato instead of the Basil because I find that the Basil is just a bit to strong for my tastebuds.  This Pesto recipe makes a great topping for Chicken, Fish and of course Pasta. 🙂   



  • 300 grams Rucola
  • 200 grams Parsley
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil
  • 2 Garlic Cloves optional
  • 6 Sun Dried Tomatoes drained from excess oil
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese


  • Place all the ingredients into a blender or a food processor and blend on high speed.
