Red Pesto 80g
Red pesto, also known as pesto alla siciliana, is a variant of the famous Italian pesto, originating from the region of Sicily. Unlike traditional green pesto, which is made with fresh basil, pine nuts, garlic and parmesan, red pesto is made with tomatoes and peppers.
Red pesto has a deep orange-red colour and a rich, complex flavour that combines the sweet and tangy notes of the dried tomatoes with the salty, pungent flavours of the cheese and garlic. The texture of red pesto is thick and creamy, ideal for coating pasta or as a marinade for grilled meats or vegetables.
Red pesto is very versatile and can be used in many ways. It is excellent with pasta, especially short pasta such as fusilli, penne or rigatoni. Red pesto can also be used as a sauce for pizza, or to accompany grilled meats such as chicken, lamb or pork. It is also delicious as a spread on toast or as a topping for crostini as an aperitif. Finally, it will surprise you as a topping for an omelette or to flavour or spice up a savoury pie!
Red pesto is a delicious variation of the traditional Italian pesto, originating in Sicily. Its rich and complex flavour and creamy texture will delight the taste buds of all lovers of Italian cuisine and tomato "sauce".
