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.
To create this reduced fat Pesto, we’ve cut back a bit on the oil and cheese in the recipe and taken special care to ensure that it has the same great taste and texture as our No.2 Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto.
Be in the know… It takes 20kg of fresh, ripe tomatoes to produce 1kg of sun-dried tomatoes.
Try our new Reduced Fat Tomato Pesto with no added sugar or salt.
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.
