DeLallo Made Easy Recipes: Whole-Wheat Linguine with Fresh Tomatoes & Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto

Whole-Wheat Linguine with Fresh Tomatoes & Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto


What's better than one kind of tomato? Two, of course! We feature our sweet sun-dried tomatoes alongside fresh cherry tomatoes in this cheery pasta dish. Served up with our hearty whole-wheat pasta and our Grated Parmesan, the only thing missing is a fresh loaf of crusty bread!


  • 1 (1-pound) package DeLallo Organic Whole-Wheat Linguine
  • 1 (6.7-ounce) jar DeLallo Sun-Dried Tomatoes in Olive Oil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup DeLallo Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 teaspoons DeLallo Nonpareil Capers
  • 9 ounces cherry tomatoes
  • 1/3 cup DeLallo Grated Parmesan
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil, plus more for serving
  • DeLallo Natural Coarse Sea Salt


Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil for pasta. Cook according to package instructions.

Purée sun-dried tomatoes with their oil, garlic, the extra virgin olive oil and capers until smooth. Add cherry tomatoes, setting a few aside for garnishing, and purée again for pesto consistency. Transfer to a large serving bowl and combine with Parmesan and basil. Salt to taste.

Drain pasta, reserving 1/2 cup of pasta water. Add hot pasta to large bowl with pesto. Toss together to incorporate, adding pasta water if necessary to loosen sauce.

Serve immediately, garnished with tomato quarters.
