Pesto Rosso

Updated: Jan 23, 2022

This tomato pesto is incredibly creamy. Make your own red pesto instead of buying it, it is so much easier than you think. I have also reduced the fat content of the pesto by adding some water instead of only olive oil. You can eat it with fresh pasta or use it as a bread topping.

Preparation Time: 10-15 mins

Cooking Time: 0 mins
