Not all pestos are green. Pesto comes from the Italian word Pestare, meaning to grind. In Sicily, the most famous pesto is pesto allá trapanese, from the Mediterranean town of Trapani, Sicily. Adding tomatoes and swapping pine nuts for almonds, Sicilians took the pesto alla genovese and made a dish that's uniquely their own.
Ditalini pasta is commonly used in many dishes throughout Sicily. Translated as 'small thimbles', Ditalini makes for a great macaroni and cheese. This creamy havarti dill mac & cheese recipe is a quick and delicious way to get your pasta fix!
