Once upon a time, Stop and Shop ran a 4 week mega-sale on sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil. I’ve never seen anything like it since. Thankfully, I bought 20 jars of it during the sale, so there won’t be a shortage of this pasta in my home anytime soon.
It’s a tangy, summery sauce that just tastes so fresh. And with it being so easy to make, it’s a regular in our summer recipe rotation.
Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta
3/4 cup oil packed sun-dried tomatoes
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, plus more for garnish
2 Tbsp Almonds (unsalted)
2 Tbsp fresh Parmesan cheese
1 Tbsp garlic
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup feta cheese
gluten-free pasta (I prefer corn/quinoa blends)
1. Cook pasta according to package directions
2. Add the first 6 ingredients into a food processor, pulse to combine.
3. Add 1/2 cup of the cooking water into the food processor, pulse to combine.
4. Place into serving dishes, sprinkle with feta cheese.
Enjoy with a nice glass of white wine!
