Presto, it's pesto! A food processor makes it easy.

3/4
cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2
cup sun-dried tomatoes in oil, undrained
1/3
cup olive or vegetable oil
3
cloves garlic
1/4
cup pine nuts

Directions

  • 1 Place all ingredients in food processor. (Do not use blender.)
  • 2 Cover and process about 3 minutes, stopping occasionally to scrape sides, until smooth.
Tips  

Toasting brings out a nuttier flavor of pine or other nuts. A good doneness test, along with color, is when you can smell the toasted aroma.

To toast nuts, sprinkle in an ungreased heavy skillet. Cook over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until nuts begin to brown, then stirring constantly until nuts are light brown. Remove them immediately from the hot pan so they don't continue to toast and become too dark or scorch.
