About this recipe:A basic recipe for basil and sun-dried tomato pesto. Came across this recipe some time ago I think it's the best pesto around. You can add more sun-dried tomatoes if you want it more tomato-y, or fewer if you want a greener pesto.
2 garlic cloves, peeled
4 tablespoons pine nuts
4-6 oil-packed sun dried tomatoes
1 medium bunch fresh basil
oil from the sun dried tomatoes

Place the garlic in a food processor or blender. Add the pine nuts and sun-dried tomatoes, and process until the ingredients are finely chopped and thoroughly combined.
Add the basil, including all the soft stalks. Process until the basil is chopped and the mixture begins to clump together.
Add the oil a tablespoon at a time, and process until combined. Add more oil till you reach your desired consistency. The sauce should have a fine, slightly grainy texture. Serve with pasta.
