This sun-dried tomato pesto is lower fat, oil free, and ridiculously creamy. I don’t know why it works but it does, and I’ve learned not to question such wonders. I simply take them in stride. This will be my message of the day for you to sew on a pillow. I welcome miracles with open arms, a grateful heart, and a shiny spoon. Dedicated with love to Angela. She was the one who made me fall in love with sun dried tomatoes many a day ago. I tip my hat to you Angela, your talent, and your beauty inside and out!
