sundried-tomato-pesto-pasta

If you like pesto this pesto pasta with sundried tomatoes will quickly become one of your absolute favorites. It’s easy to throw together and tastes like you’ve been working on it all day. Definitely a favorite in our home, of course, I love anything with sundried tomatoes. I could eat this everyday if I were “allowed” to, though I know it’s probably not the healthiest to live on one thing (but hey, it has vegetables).

This is perfect for dinner or lunch, or even breakfast if you can’t resist. It doesn’t take long to prepare, which makes it a great summertime or weeknight meal. (It’s also delicious with some cubed cooked chicken if you want it some protein.) I hope you enjoy! 🙂
