Hello everyone, welcome to my latest dinner recipe for Gluten and Dairy Free Tomato Pesto Spaghetti. I often make my own traditional basil pesto (recipe here) but decided to have a go at making a red pesto with sun dried tomatoes. It comes together pretty quickly with just a handful of key ingredients. I personally find that jarred sun dried tomatoes works best for this recipe as the tomatoes are already soaked in olive oil. You can make a double batch or store any leftover pesto in the fridge or freezer.
