Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto Pasta

If you are looking for a slightly different version of a pesto, then you should try this sun-dried tomato pesto.  It’s easy to make with mostly pantry items, which is always a bonus.  If you don’t have pecans, you can also use almonds or walnuts.  

Serves 4

2 cloves garlic, peeled
1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes
1/4 cup pecans
1/2 cup Kalamata olives, pitted
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1/4 cup olive oil
454 grams dry linguine
1/4 cup fresh parsley, minced
Salt and pepper, to taste
Grated fresh Parmesan cheese for serving

Purée the garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, pecans, olives, Parmesan cheese and olive oil in a food processor. Cook pasta according to package and drain. Mix in the sun-dried tomato mixture and minced parsley. Season with salt and pepper. Serve, passing the Parmesan cheese.
