Obsessed! That’s how I feel about this pesto.
While thinking of something new to do with the pounds of fresh basil growing in our garden I came up with the idea of adding fresh tomatoes to a classic pesto, making it even thicker and more hearty. I dug what I made so much I ended up making a massive extra batch to freeze in individual containers so I’ll have it for weeks — if not months — to come.
This pesto is ideal to serve on pasta, mix into rice or quinoa for a solid vegetarian meal, or even spread on fish or chicken before baking for a simple recipe. It’s that versatile and a mealtime life saver whenever you need one. Is it me or isn’t that most of the time?

Just made this and it was DELICIOUS,!

Yes to the combo of almonds, tomatoes, and basil!
This looks amazing and easy! One of my goals this year is to rock dinner – this is definitely going on the list!
About 1 1/2 cup chopped!
You mentioned that you made yours using fresh tomatoes – can you please give the measurements/instructions for that too?
