J: I've been making mostly repeats lately, including some birthday choices. This one is a few weeks old, but it's at least something new. Fettucine with Sun Dried Tomato and Pistachio Pesto 2 cups sun dried tomatoes 1/4 cup parmesan cheese 1/2 cup shelled pistachios 5 shallots 5 cloves garlic Olive oil 2 lbs fettucine Soak sun dried tomatoes in hot water for 20 minutes, or until they are soft. Put them in a food processor or blender with the rest of the ingredients and start processing. Add olive oil a little at a time, using just enough to make a nice paste. Cook fettucine, drain, and toss with paste. Serve with parmesan cheese.
