This classic Sicilian comfort food is great around the holidays or as a side dish anytime of the year. What better way to enjoy this unique vegetable than with this flavorful Italian tradition.
SUMMER IN SICILY
Slow down with the flavors of summer in Sicily. Indulge in a light summer pasta with our Sweet Pepper Pesto and Tagliatelle pasta. Or bask in the flavors of the Mediterranean with Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Capers, and award-winning Forte extra virgin olive oil. Top it all off with Sicilian Sea Salt infused with truffles from La Furtuna Estate, in the heart of Sicily. Plus, cool down with one of our refreshing summer drink recipes.
For the Bold
This bold and beautiful extra virgin olive oil greets you with the fiery essence of young, healthy olives and opens on your palate with flavors of tomato leaf, freshly cut green grass, and rich earthy soil, leaving you with a hint of white pepper in your throat and a refreshing emboldened state of mind. Experience the strength, endurance and vitality of Sicilian terroir within the sun-ripened skins of our olives.
Bursts of the Mediterranean
Rinse these salty, preserved capers thoroughly to discover a wealth of vegetal riches in this Mediterranean gem. Distinctive unto themselves, capers have a slight lemony tang, with savory seaside brine overtones. The sensual flavors of our Aeolian capers are used throughout Italian cuisine to give an herbal expanse to any dish. Add to your favorite tomato sauce, sea bass or on top of your focaccia and taste the earthly riches of Sicily.
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.
Ruby Jewels of the Earth
Savor the sweetly tart punch of flavor with our tomatoes dried below the Sicilian sun. Slice these ruby jewels of the earth into thin strips and bake with fresh halibut, or sautee with spicy pork sausage and toss into busiate with a fresh shaving of pecorino.
Truffle Salt with Incomparable Flavor
Black truffles exude a slightly musky and woody perfume that perfectly marries the earthy salinity of Trapani sea salt. With versatile uses in cooking, our Sicilian Sea Salt with Black Truffle seasoning boasts a mixture of chocolaty, nutty and oaky flavor with a subtle hint of mushrooms.

Love the pasta
I have been a monthly subscriber for over a year the quality of the products is exceptional As usual this month was easy to assemble The recipe evoked a fine summer day the last time we were in Italy My one comment is the size of the olive oil lately the last couple of months have been 3 oz. bottles I like the 17 oz bottles they were excellent in the dish then i had the rest of the bottle to use till the next delivery Yes i know you sell the oil in various sizes however the 75 dollar charge would help justify the 17 oz. bottle Things are tight out there your product would be the first to go if needed make it easy for me throw some extra in the box i will hold on another month or two
Great selection of products!
The BEST pasta, seasonings, sauces, oils and condiments. I use them every day and gift them.
