Tomato Pesto Sauce
A quick and easy tomato sauce that creates goodness from roasted cherry tomatoes and a few other items from a jar.
- 1 Cup Trader Joes Roasted Cherry Tomatoes
- 1 Roasted Medium Red Pepper
- 1/3 Cup Pesto
- 1/3 Cup Heavy Cream
- 1 Tsp Chilli Flakes
- 2 Cloves Garlic
- Smoked Gouda Cheese Optional
Add all of the ingredients, except salt and cheese, in a food processor and pulse until it comes into a smooth consistency.
Taste the sauce after blending. Season with salt to taste.
Tomato Pesto Sauce tastes best when mixed into freshly boiled hot pasta. The heat from the pasta heats the sauce. A bit of pasta water can be added to loosen up the sauce to desired consistency.
Shred the gouda cheese and sprinkle on top of the pasta as desired.
