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.
Flavors of Earth and Sun
Creamy, smooth, and undeniably sweet, this sweet pepper pesto exemplifies the comforting flavors of ripe red bell peppers. Each bite emits the honest flavors of unity between earth and sun. Pair with pizza, scallops, and dry white wine.
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.
So tasty and an easy add!
This pesto is a new favorite — it enlivens pasta and veggies pronto!
