Fettuccine with Sun-Dried Tomatoes

2/3 c sun-dried tomatoes (not Packed in oil)
3 - 4 garlic cloves
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 t dried oregano leaves, crushed
1/4 c butter
1/4 c sour cream
1 lb fettuccine
1/4 c olive oil
Salt & pepper
2 t parsley

Cover tomatoes with boiling water; let stand 10 minutes. Drain. Place tomatoes and garlic in covered food processor or blender container; process until coarsely chopped. Add cream cheese and oregano; process until well blended. Melt butter in medium saucepan; stir in cream cheese mixture and sour cream. Cook until thoroughly heated. Keep sauce warm while you cook the fettuccine. Toss cooked fettuccine with oil in large bowl. Add cream cheese mixture. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle with chopped parsley. Serve immediately.

Time: 30 minutes   Serves: 8

This dish is very rich. A little goes a long way. Serve it with salad, bread and a light dessert. If you don't have fettucine, you can substitute another pasta.
