 Here is a quick pasta dinner which can be made in no time, if you have sun-dried tomato pesto handy.  I love anything made of sun-dried tomato.  More than creamy pasta I always love this kind of low fat versions of pasta.  Even though I make this very often this time it was so special, yes because of the fruity Olive oil, juicy sun-dried tomato packed with olive oil and herbs are all from Italy.  The pasta was so flavorful and we enjoyed it to the core.  It was absolutely delicious and light.  Enjoy Sun-dried tomato pesto pasta with your favorite wine!!!
