Pesto di pomodori secchi

This pesto is almost reminiscent of Ragu alla Bolognese in its consistency and appearance. In fact, it also tastes not even that much different. Therefore, this sauce in combination with a nice pasta would probably be a nice vegan “Bolognese dish”. The delicious flavor of the sun-dried tomatoes complements the pine nuts and almonds perfectly here. But it’s best to taste it for yourself. In just 10 minutes we are ready… Here we go… let’s make sun dried tomato pesto!

My tip

If you put the pesto in a small jar and seal it with a layer of olive oil, it will keep for up to 3 days in the refrigerator.
