Greetings Foodies,

I did something last week that I don’t usually do.  I made up a recipe of my own.  Gasp!!  If you read my About section, you will realize that this is a rare occurance indeed.  Luckily, I was using pesto as my base and pesto is one of those lovely things that you can tweak and no matter what you do, it generally turns out well.

I had some basic, but yummy ingredients in my fridge and so I decided to throw them together and see what happened. I was so pleased with the result that I think this is going to replace my normal pesto recipe for good!  The great thing is it is super easy and takes, literally, 5 minutes to make (minus the time it takes to make your pasta).

So here you go, a Gullible Gourmet original:

Creamy Pesto Rosé Sauce

1/2 cup prepared pesto

3/4 cup tomato sauce

1/3 cup heavy cream

1/3 cup dry white wine

1-2 gloves of garlic (I didnt find my pesto to be garlic-y enough)

Crushed ground pepper

Throw all the ingredients together in a small sauce pan and let them simmer for 5 minutes. Pour over prepared pasta.  Add parmesan and black olives if desired.  That’s it!  Together with some garlic bread and a nice salad, it tastes like something you would get in a restaurant. At least, that is what my dear husband told me 😉 True or not, it was a nice compliment.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.  Happy Eating!
