Red Pesto Pasta
This red pesto pasta recipe is very simple and quick - in just a few minutes you will have a plate of pasta on the table with a true Italian taste. In Italy, pesto is an institution, but there are two most popular recipes: pesto alla Genovese, with pecorino, Parmigiano Reggiano, garlic, basil and pine nuts; and pesto alla Trapanese, the best-known variant of red pesto, which is prepared with sun-dried tomatoes, ricotta cheese, almonds, garlic and extra virgin olive oil.
As often happens for every traditional Italian recipe, every family has its own variant, so you can taste different types of red pesto, with anchovies, olives, capers and other 'secret' ingredients.
The red pesto pasta recipe that we offer is with roasted peppers, an ingredient that will give your pasta a fresh taste and at the same time a pleasant smoky note. Starting from this preparation, try to experiment and add the ingredients you prefer... but never tell your Italian friends.
