Pork Roast with Pesto Sauce for 20
- For sauce, in a bowl stir together pesto sauce and chopped dried tomatoes or pimiento. Cover; chill at least 2 hours. Place pork roasts in a shallow roasting pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Insert a meat thermometer in each roast. Roast in a 325 degree F oven 1-3/4 to 2-3/4 hours or until thermometers register 155 degrees F. Cover loosely with foil after 1 hour to prevent overbrowning. Cover roast and let stand 15 minutes before carving. (The temperature of the roast should rise about 5 degrees upon standing to 160 degrees F.) Serve sauce with the roast pork. Makes 20 servings.
