my version: 4 oz sun dried tomatoes, 3/4 c fresh basil, 1/4 c fresh parsley, 1/2 small onion, 1/4 c pine nuts, 4 cloves garlic, 1 can diced tomatoes, 1 small can tomato sauce, 1/4 c red wine vinegar, 1/8 c balsamic vinegar...combine in blender and then add parmesan cheese on top. This was sooooo good!

Gross? do you know that is what Pesto is supposed to look like? Omitting the Parmesan cheese is illogical. why? then, it isn't pesto = a key ingredient taken out. Understand what you're making. I found this absolutely fantastic & creative.

Very good sauce with Angel Hair pasta! Fairly quick to make and actually has a texture similar to meat sauce. A good vegetarian substitution.
