Whip Up a Sun Dried Tomato Sauce

Want to whip up a quick, simple dinner that won’t heat up your kitchen? We highly recommend pasta with a nutty, spicy sauce featuring sun dried tomatoes and walnuts. This fresh meal is perfect when paired with a loaf of french bread and a crisp green salad.

To start, measure 1/2 cup of sun dried tomatoes, 2-3 tbsp. of olive oil, a handful of finely chopped fresh basil leaves, 1/4 cup of shelled walnuts, 1/4 tsp. of red pepper flakes and two cloves of garlic into the bowl of your food processor. Process the ingredients until they’re finely chopped, then add 1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese and a pinch of salt and pepper. Pulse the food processor until the ingredients are combined, and scrape the sun dried tomatoes sauce into a bowl.

Boil 12 oz. of your favorite pasta. (Gluten-free pasta works great with this recipe!) Toss the drained noodles gently in the sauce, and top each serving of pasta with grated Parmesan and a little chopped basil.

If pasta isn’t your passion, this sauce is also great when it’s spread on a slice of fresh, crusty bread. The walnuts give the sauce a slightly nutty flavor, and the sweet sun dried tomatoes are a wonderfully savory addition to any sandwich or appetizer.
