Pasta with Spinach and Sun Dried Tomato Pesto

HealthyVegan's picture
Pasta and salads such as this sun dried tomato pesto recipe are two things I don't often post for healthy vegan recipes because they are the stereotypical vegan meals. There is a whole world of delicious and healthy vegan meals outside of pasta and salads, but you know what? Every so often pasta just really hits the spot, especially when tomatoes are fresh. You might even be tempted to eat this with a salad...
  Kamut fusilli/Any other whole grain pasta 223 Gram (1/2 Package)
  Pecans 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Sun dried tomatoes 15 (Whole)
  Olive oil 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Water 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Black pepper To Taste
  Sun dried tomatoes 5 , chopped
  Lettuce leaves 1 Cup (16 tbs), shredded
  Cherry tomatoes 1 Cup (16 tbs), halved

1.Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil, then add the pasta and cook until done.
2.Toast the pecans lightly (5 min at 350F).
3.Put half of the nuts in a food processor or blender, along with the whole sun-dried tomatoes, the oil, water, and pepper to taste. Puree until smooth.
4.Toss the cooked pasta with the rest of the pecans, the chopped dun-dried tomatoes, the cherry tomatoes, and the lettuce. Dress with the pesto. I hope you enjoy this sun dried tomato pesto recipe, the latest of my healthy vegan recipes.
