Tomato, Chilli & Garlic Pesto Recipe

Tomato, Chilli And Garlic Pesto Recipe

I usually try to make fresh pestos and pasta sauces if I have the time rather than using the pre-packaged sauces as the flavours are so much fresher and really pop in your mouth! This pesto is absolutely delicious and I like to heat it up in a pan first to really bring out the garlic flavour and then add some garlic butter and then toss some hot pasta in the sauce :)

Ingredients (makes enough pesto for around 3-4 portions of pasta):

  • 100g sun-dried tomatoes (packed in oil)
  • 2 small red chillis
  • 12 cloves garlic
  • 10 fresh basil leaves
  • 5g fresh parsley
  • 1/2 a small red onion
  • 2 tbsp tomato puree
  • 75ml olive oil
  • 50g grated parmesan cheese
  • pinch of salt

Directions:

  • Put all the ingredients except for the olive oil into a food processor and until well processed and mixed.
  • Stir in the olive oil.
