Tomato Pesto Mushroom Pasta

Mushroom Pasta recipe made simple
Tomato Pesto Pasta recipe


- 1 cup sundried tomatoes

- 1/8 cup pine nuts

- 1/8 cup almonds

- 1 cup fresh basil leaves

- Olive oil

- Grated Parmesan cheese

- Chilli flakes

- Salt

- Pepper

- Mushrooms

- 1 Onion medium sized


1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).

2. Drizzle some olive oil over the sundried tomatoes and place them on a baking sheet. Roast them in the preheated oven for about 5 minutes, just until they become slightly softened.

3. While the tomatoes are roasting, dry roast the pine nuts and almonds in a pan over medium heat. Make sure to stir frequently to prevent burning. Roast until they are lightly golden and fragrant, about 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat and let them cool slightly.

4. In a food processor or blender, combine the roasted sundried tomatoes, pine nuts, almonds, and fresh basil leaves.

5. Add a generous drizzle of olive oil to the mixture, enough to help it blend smoothly. Start with about 1/4 cup and adjust as needed for desired consistency.

6. Blend the mixture until it forms a thick paste, scraping down the sides of the blender or processor as needed to ensure everything is well combined.

7. Add grated Parmesan cheese to the mixture, along with chili flakes, salt, and pepper to taste. Blend again until all ingredients are fully incorporated, and the sauce is smooth.

8. If the sauce is too thick, you can add more olive oil to reach your desired consistency.

9. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.

10. Now in a pan sauté some onions and mushrooms with salt and pepper.

11. Add cooked pasta of your choice and the homemade tomato pesto sauce. Mix well and serve.

12. Your homemade tomato pesto sauce can be tossed with pasta, spread on sandwiches, or used as a flavorful dip. Enjoy!
