Pesto rosso is a variation on traditional green pesto. The addition of sundried tomatoes gives it a distinctive, milder flavor. Try it on pasta or on a sandwich. Brush it on a chicken before roasting.
Store the pesto in a tightly-closed jar in the fridge. It's wonderful fresh, but will keep for 1-2 weeks with a drizzle of oil on top if it seems too dry.
- Place all the ingredients except the oil into the container of a food processor; blend first to grind all the ingredients.
- Gradually add the oil with the processor running on high speed.
