An impressive appetizer that will have your guests raving and begging for the recipe! This Pesto & Sun Dried Tomato Torta is so full of the flavors of Tuscany you’ll think you’re there!
A couple months ago I shared a recipe for Caprese Tartlets that a family friend makes. She’s the one who I said we always look forward to when she shows up at a party because we know she will have something spectacular to eat.
Well she did it again! This is the appetizer that she brought to my daughter’s graduation party. Let me tell you… everyone was raving over this one! Several people asked for the recipe so I knew I needed to share it here on Family Table Treasures.
I made this for dad on Father’s Day along with the refreshing Mai Tais that I shared the recipe for earlier this week. We couldn’t get enough of this tasty dip and I’m kind of wishing I didn’t cut the recipe in half.
It was pretty simple to make too. The only problem I had was that I made it at Paul’s house and he didn’t have a food processor. I had to use his blender and it really did not work well so it took me a bit longer. If you have a food processor, emulsion blender or a high performance blender like a Ninja or Vitamix you’ll have this whipped up in no time! Next time I’ll make sure I have my Ninja blender with me!
This recipe was shared by a family friend who got it from a local cook book. I also found the recipe on Epicurious and slightly adapted it.
I think the directions explain the process of puting this together well but I thought I would share a picture of how to line your dish with plastic wrap. Make sure you spray inside of your dish before lining it with plastic wrap for easy removal.
This Pesto & Sun Dried Tomato Torta is great on toasted baguettes, crackers, veggies or anything else you want to make more delicious!
