"This is my version of red pesto. It's really good with pasta or spread on a crusty bread."

Really great recipe. Used 3/4 tbsp. garlic and found it just right (you know that kind already minced in the jar). Deep and rich flavour. Served it over toasted baguette slices (thin) Don't really think you need to change anything. But I am curious how a little wine or balsalmic would play into it. Also wondering how it would taste with a little pine nuts. Some things to try later. But, seriously, really great recipe as is.

10 STARS - Killer Recipe! I could eat this on bread, on pasta or just by the spoonful. Thanks! It's delicious! UPDATE: I did use jarred packed in oil type sun dried tomatoes.

This was delish! I spread it on some grilled baguette slices. Next time I make it, and there will be a next time, I'll use less salt. Hubby said he'd like it over some pasta so I'll give it a try! Thanks so much for this recipe!
