Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto

“I went to a market and bought some lovely pesto sauce, which the family loved. The market being so far away and the price or the pesto, meant I had to come up with something myself. So I did and the family love this even more. I have made it both with without the pine nuts, and it tastes great either way. This sauce can be chilled and served as a dip or spread on focaccia, fresh rolls or mountain bread...... our favourite is heated and stirred through pasta. This is so quick and easy and would be great with chicken or meat.. Freezers well also!!!!!!”
