from http://www.canadianliving.com/food/rotini_with_sun_dried_tomatoes_and_basil.php This no-cook sauce is so easy that this dish is ready in the time it takes to cook the pasta. Depending on the sun-dried tomatoes you use, you may need to add salt. This recipe makes 2 serving(s) My note: recipe called for sundried tomatoes in oil, but I just used my regular dried ones (softened); may need to add a bit more oil to account for this. This does not include the pasta it is served over--add that separately.
