Dinner using Sun-dried Tomatoes
Sun-Dried Tomato and Ricotta Bruschetta
Four slices of tomato
Salt and pepper
Sun-dried tomatoes in oil
Add ricotta, tomato, salt and pepper and sun-dried tomatoes to the baguette.
Penne with Sun-dried Tomato Pesto
This recipe was another Giada find, typical.
12 ounces penne pasta
1 (8.5-ounce) jar sun-dried tomatoes packed in olive oil
2 garlic cloves
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 cup (packed) fresh basil leaves
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan
Meanwhile, blend the sun-dried tomatoes and their oil, garlic, salt and pepper, to taste, and basil in a food processor and blend until the tomatoes are finely chopped. Transfer the tomato mixture to a large bowl. Stir in the Parmesan.
Add the pasta to the pesto and toss to coat, adding enough reserved cooking liquid to moisten. Season the pasta, to taste, with salt and pepper and serve.
