Yesterday I happened upon a bag of dried tomatoes in a kitchen drawer and tried to make a Pesto Rosso. The result was less than satisfactory.
Notes to self:
1. Get a blender
2. No salt unless you have tasted it.
3. Four cloves of garlic is too many.
4. If you put the whole mess on ciabatta and bake it, don't topple it over when trying to get it out of the oven.
The recipe was:
6 dried tomatoes
2 tablespoons of concentrated tomato puree
5 tablespoons of olive oil
1 tablespoon of pine nuts, roasted and crushed
4 cloves of garlic
2 black olives
4 basil leaves
some black pepper
1/2 a teaspoon of salt
