The bountiful garden vegetables of the season inspired this Italian-American dish first created in New York City in the 1970’s. We’ve elevated this delicious dish one step further by mixing our Lemon Salt and fresh asparagus, a wild vegetable that grows in abundance on our farm, into the cream sauce for a richly satisfying meal.
The Taste of Summertime
Bringing the sweetly bright, nostalgic flavors of Sicilian basil together with the hearty, distinct nuances of toasted almonds, this pesto illuminates every dish with the taste of summertime. Toss into your favorite pasta, salad, or dollop onto your fried egg for breakfast.
Straight from the Jar
Bona Furtuna’s pestos and spreads capture the fresh flavors of Sicily’s abundant produce. Surrounded by numerous volcanoes, both active and dormant, the island’s exceptional fertility is due to its nutrient-rich volcanic soils and temperate climate. Taste the coast of the Mediterranean in each bite. We certainly won’t question you eating these straight from the jar.
I love this pesto- even bought a jar for a friend who makes her own. She said it was better than hers. Thanks for another terrific product.
Enjoyed the pesto. Very flavorful. Will buy again.
Bellissimo! We're thrilled to hear you enjoyed our new Sicilian Basil Almond Pesto- buon appetito!
