Today we are in Italy. This is super easy and very delish. It makes a lot so could feed 4-6 depending on if you have teenagers in the house.
Artichoke Tomato Pesto
1/2 cup dried tomatoes packed in oil, drained
10 oz jar artichoke hearts, drained
1.5 cup romaine lettuce
1/3 cup parmesan
2 Tablespoons pine nuts
2 cloves garlic
2-3 leaves fresh basil
1/2 cup olive oil
I had this genius idea to try this in the blender. I do NOT recommend it. Use a food processor.
Puree artichoke hearts, dried tomatoes, lettuce leaves, Parmesan cheese, pine nuts and garlic until smooth.
Slowly pour olive oil into mixture while motor is running. Blend until smooth.
It doesn’t look too pretty but it smells wonderful!
Serve over Pasta.
