Oven Dried Tomato & Garlic Pesto Pasta so flavorful and you can have dinner on the table in ten minutes!

We had a ton of oven dried tomatoes from when I made them last week and yesterday had been a long day so I wasn’t trying to make a fancy schmancy dinner. Even if it wasn’t fancy schmancy, I knew I could make something delicious and easy with the leftover oven dried tomatoes. I thought: food processor, tomatoes, olive oil, and garlic. Over pasta. Done. That was easy and that was how my oven dried tomato and garlic pesto pasta became dinner. Extremely flavorful, to the point that you can fend off vampires, and also tangy with a bite to it from the tomatoes. This took 10 minutes to make so you should put this on your menu if you have a busy week coming up!
