Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto

This recipe is gluten free

Cook time:: 40-50 minutes

Cooling time:: 1 hour

More of a spread than pesto, ANGOSTURA® aromatic bitters adds depth to this distinctive appetizer. Use on crostini with a sprinkle of tangy Parmesan cheese, or use as a dip with bread sticks or cheese sticks.

INGREDIENTS

1 can (14.5 oz.) fire-roasted crushed tomatoes

1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil *

1 Tbsp. olive oil from the sun-dried tomatoes

1 Tbsp. ANGOSTURA® aromatic bitters

1 tsp. dried basil

3 cloves garlic, chopped

Makes 1 cup

METHOD

Combine ingredients in a 2 to 4-quart sauce pan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium. Cook, uncovered, until liquid is gone and mixture is very thick, 40-50 minutes, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat if needed the last 10 minutes.

Remove pan from heat and cool, uncovered, 15 minutes. Transfer to a food processor and blend until smooth. Refrigerate until ready to use. Spread may be stored in the fridge up to 1 week.
