Flavors of Italy
Total time: less than 15 minutes
Difficulty: Easy
Chef's Note

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.

- 3 Tbsp. Parmesan cheese
- 2 cloves of garlic, peeled and germ removed
- 20 basil leaves
- olive oil
- 3 sundried tomatoes
- 2 Tbsp. pine nuts
  1. Place all the ingredients except the oil into the container of a food processor; blend first to grind all the ingredients.
  2. Gradually add the oil with the processor running on high speed.
