Homemade Sun-dried Tomato and Basil Pesto. Easy, pantry staple ingredients, super quick to make, and so much better than anything you can buy! It's perfect atop all your favorite pizza's, tossed with pasta, or even as a delicious dip for breadsticks. Fresh, vibrant flavors, and SO GOOD! We have used this pesto for a variety of things and it always works perfectly. Plus, it stores just as well as store-bought. It's truly the best pesto all the way around!

Let's be real. Things like pesto are incredibly hard to get right now. That's where the inspiration for this recipe came from. That and we have been making a lot of pizza. Because, hey - why not? But, when you eat a lot of pizza, there is suddenly a pesto shortage in the house. Oh, and apparently in the grocery store, too.

So, we made our own!
