Cooking instruction summary:

Combine the sun-dried tomatoes, parmesan cheese, basil and garlic in a food processor or a powerful blender. Pulse a few times to bring the ingredients together. Slowly add the olive oil and continue to pulse and scrape down the sides of the jar as necessary until the pesto reaches a consistency that is between a paste and a liquid sauce. Taste and add salt and pepper to taste. Cassie's Notes:The sun-dried tomatoes I used needed to be reconstituted in hot water before use. I poured boiling water over them and let them soak for 30 minutes and then used them immediately in this recipe. If yours are packed in oil, they won't need to be reconstituted, just drain the oil from them before using, and feel free to use the oil for the recipe.I saved the water used to reconstitute the tomatoes for a pasta dish I'll share later.
