We Italians love tomatoes so much that we affectionately call them ‘red gold’. The juicy ones that we pound into this rich sauce have been dried for around seven days under the warm Italian sun to intensify their flavour, before being blended with fragrant Italian basil, Grana Padano cheese and pine nuts.
This Pesto will lift your homemade pizza, fish fillets and Mediterranean vegetable tarts with the rich flavours and sunshine of Italy.
Be in the know… It takes 20kg of fresh, ripe tomatoes to produce 1kg of sun-dried tomatoes.
How to use
With pasta, we think 100g of pasta per quarter jar of Pesto works best or visit our recipe collection for more inspiration.
