Low Fat Basil Tomato Pesto

This low fat version of pesto is simply wonderful, and it's just bursting with fresh flavor. I really like the flavor of traditional pesto, but the addition of the tomatoes in this recipe really, really goes well with all that lovely fresh basil. This makes just enough pesto for one pound of your favorite cooked pasta. Or use it to top eggs, baked potatoes, fish, spread it on sandwiches, or add as an extra flavoring to soups or rice. The possibilities are endless! I've also made this using part fresh parsley when I didn't have an entire cup of fresh basil on hand.
