Frequently asked questions about Basil Pesto, Sicilian version

What does Sicilian basil pesto pair with?

The Sicilian version of basil pesto is a real pesto and as such can be used on crostini, spread on pizza or used to season pasta, in particular trofie and homemade penne. But also to accompany second courses such as roasts and boiled meats as an alternative to the classic green sauce. More original and modern uses are the addition to bread dough to obtain fragrant and aromatic loaves.

How do you use basil pesto, the Sicilian version, in first courses?

This pesto is ideal for preparing an aromatic pasta dish. We recommend penne or trofie, if possible homemade and rustic, for an optimal result. The pesto is ready to taste as it is and you just need to dilute it in a very little pasta cooking water to obtain a creamy and intense sauce.

What is the difference between Ligurian basil pesto and Sicilian basil pesto?

The Sicilian version of basil pesto is nothing more than a reinterpretation of the typical Genoese pesto using only Sicilian ingredients: almonds and pistachios instead of pine nuts, “Cosacavaddu” cheese instead of Parmigiano Reggiano and our extra virgin olive oil olive instead of the Ligurian one which is less intense and lighter. The main ingredient, i.e. basil, naturally differs in variety and origin since only local basil is used for each of these products.
