There are some ingredients that you try and you wonder "wow, why haven't I tasted this before." And changes are if I recall correctly, if semi sundried tomatoes were introduced to me 6 years ago, I wouldn't have appreciated it as much as I do now.
Funny enough, it's the semi sundried that I enjoy having not the sundried version. There is something about the juicyness of semi sundried that stands itself apart from sundried part. Not that I know what is the exact difference of course.
My favourite way of having them is in my pasta. Certainly it adds the sweetness and tangyness to a "boring" simple pasta dish. This time round, I had a small amount of smoked salmon in the fridge and decided to use them up as well.
This is probably one of the most no-fuss recipes I have! It's amazing what you can conjour up after a tired day!!!!
