In between I was totally off Pasta…SHOCKER!! I knooow… With my love for pastas and bread it is definitely shocking I did not want much pasta 😛 But now pasta love is back 😀 I loooove pasta salads for lunch… pick a pasta…add any veggies you want, add some home made dressing … YUM!! Stomach full..and happy!! While lately my bread intake has definitely gone down and that too eating healthier Ezekiel 4:9 Sesame Sprouted Whole Grain Bread Pasta has not been easy to quit…so after moving to eating Whole Wheat and now Quinoa pastas.. feel a little less guilty 😉
So while I love my Basil Spinach Pesto… I decided to try Sun Dried Tomato Pesto. Had bought a bag of Sun Dried Tomatoes from Costco (plain, not in oil). So 1 google search later…. I found Giada DeLaurentis’s Sun Dried Tomato Pesto recipe.
