“Food Tip” del giorno – Sun Dried Tomatoes!

by valentinalucia

Sun dried tomatoes usually come either packed in oil or still dry in packages. If you buy them packed in oil, save the oil they came in after you use the tomatoes – that oil is infused with delicious sun-dried-tomato flavor and is delicious to cook with, or simply to put on salads, breads, and much more!

This is one of my favorite recipes – Red Pesto Ravioli from 101 Cookbooks. I’ve made this pesto, with my own flare and variations, for my family multiple times and it always creates an amazing pasta dish! I’m a sun dried tomato freak – I could eat them by themselves, but creating a pesto from them is one of my favorite ways to incorporate them into a meal.
