homemade pesto

Pesto Rosso

Being adventurous doesn’t have to be going all out and skydive. It could be trying a new recipe in the kitchen. For example this delicious Pesto Rosso.

Pesto Rosso (literally, “Red Pesto”) is a Sicilian variation that starts with sun-dried tomatoes. It has a rich red hue and a deep, sweet, tangy flavor. Like all pestos, Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto recipes also vary by region and cook. The sauce typically calls for almonds instead of the pine nuts used in basil pesto.

Really easy to make and very nice. Different to the usual green basil pesto but great to garnish vegetable tagliatelle, for tapas or pasta. Thanks to fellow Advisor, Sara De Miguel Hernandez for this recipe under her business Flow with Me.

Basil pesto


This easy, beautiful pesto recipe is absolutely bursting with fresh herby flavour. … You can whizz up your own delicious pesto in under 5 minutes – it’s great for a fast-fix meal.  Homemade pesto is tastier than any shop bought version and this recipe shows how easy it is to make.

I use it on it’s own with pasta (always a winner in my home), spread it on a warm, crusty roll or smother it on salmon and steam with rice in the Thermomix; whatever you do with it, it’s a winner and a staple in my kitchen fridge.
