Penne with Sun Dried Tomato Pesto **Low Cal/ Fat

Submitted by: SADIE78
Penne with Sun Dried Tomato Pesto **Low Cal/ Fat

Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    12 ounces wheat penne pasta
    1 (8.5-ounce) jar sun-dried tomatoes packed in olive oil
    2 garlic cloves
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    1 cup (packed) fresh basil leaves
    1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan

Directions

Cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes. Drain, reserving 1 cup of the cooking liquid.

Meanwhile, blend the sun-dried tomatoes and their oil, garlic, salt and pepper, to taste, and basil in a food processor and blend until the tomatoes are finely chopped. Transfer the tomato mixture to a large bowl. Stir in the Parmesan.

Add the pasta to the pesto and toss to coat, adding enough reserved cooking liquid to moisten. Season the pasta, to taste, with salt and pepper and serve.
