If I were to ask you about some of the greatest love stories you’ve heard, you would probably say Romeo and Juliet. Or Heer and Ranjha. Or Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy. Or Me and Mr. Darcy (ours is a little one-sided, I’ll admit) 🙂
I have one more for you. Tomatoes and Basil.
The mild spice of the basil against the tart and sweet tomatoes, they’re a match made in heaven. Now if you’ve been regularly reading my blog, you’re probably thinking “Here she goes making a pesto again”. Why am I doing this you ask? Because it’s summer, my farmers’ market is flooded with fragrant basil. I cannot resist buying it.
But unfortunately, it has a short shelf life. I am always anxious to use it up because if it goes bad on my clock, I get really mad at myself. And so I make pesto, which in my opinion is the best way to use up your basil.
My last pesto recipe – Spinach Pesto was a winner, especially with my toddler even though it was green!! So spurred on by that, I give you my Sun Dried Tomato Pesto, which marries the greatest lovers of all time – Tomato and Basil. And the reception party will be in your mouth.
