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.

A Perfect Snack
There are times when you just need a quick snack, the snacks are plentiful, but nothing appeals. Now I just reach for my Bona Furtuna sweet pepper pesto, spread some on crackers or celery, the choice varies. My snack is delicious.
We know that feeling when you are craving a snack all too well, haha. We do the same thing! We snack on our pestos and spreads with bread or crackers all the time here at the office! We also love how easy it is to make! We are happy to hear you are enjoying the Sweet Pepper Pesto so much!
