Right after I made the Spinach Pesto my kids were craving panini’s for dinner and it would have made a nice spread with the grilled chicken. So instead, I made a quick batch of this Sun Dried Tomato & Asiago Cheese Pesto to go on our sandwiches and they were AMAZING!
The family liked them so much that I didn’t even get a chance to photograph the sandwiches themselves. This pesto was ready in about 10 minutes. For this recipe you’ll need sun dried tomatoes, garlic, fresh basil, Asiago cheese and extra virgin olive oil. Simply add all of the ingredients to a mini food processor and blend until smooth. I find that the cheese has enough salt in it, so I don’t add any extra, but you can season with salt and pepper if you prefer.
Some other uses for this pesto might be to mix it with cooked pasta, mix it in with a risotto, or use as a filler in stuffed chicken or pork. Hmmm….I better go make some more because that sounds delicious! ~Enjoy!
