Sun Dried Tomato Pesto Pasta

Sun Dried Tomato Pesto Pasta

4 ounces sun-dried tomatoes
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1/4 cup chopped pine nuts (or pistachios) 
3 tablespoons chopped onion
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup red wine
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese salt to taste

Place sun-dried tomatoes in a bowl and cover with warm water for 5 minutes, or until tender.

In a food processor combine sun-dried tomatoes, basil, parsley, garlic, pine nuts and onion; process until well blended. Add vinegar and red wine, and process. Stir in olive oil and Parmesan cheese. Season with salt to taste.

Pour on pasta noodles, serve immediately.  I like to grate some old asiago on each bowl to add a bit more sharpness.
