Sundried tomato pesto: I love pesto, they solve lunch in a few minutes, they are tasty and you can prepare an infinite number of them. This dried tomatoes in oil is the "brother" of the Genoese one with basil, it contains a mix of flavors combined with each other that give the pasta a truly spectacular flavor and texture! You can use Parmesan, Grana but I prefer the stronger and more rustic flavor of pecorino.
Ingredients for 4 people
- 10 dried tomatoes in oil
- 20 peeled almonds
- 5-6 fresh basil leaves
- 1 pinch of salt
- 2-3 tablespoons of grated pecorino
- 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
- 1/3 of a clove of garlic
