Pesto Genovese is one of the greatest Italian food and wine excellences, we are used to seeing the shelves of supermarkets all over the world with these green jars, but it is fair to know that what we find in the supermarket, unfortunately, is not the real pesto Genovese.
If you check most of the labels well, especially those of the cheapest products, you will find written: "Pesto alla Genovese" or "Pesto Ligure" and not Pesto Genovese, this difference in the name allows us to easily understand that the product we are buying or that we intend to buy is not the authentic Genovese pesto.
In this video recipe, we take the best artisanal made in Italy products in order to make delicious pasta that combines the flavors of Campania, Puglia, and Umbria.
Here is the shopping list: Pasta, Pork Cheek, Yellow Tomatoes, Neapolitan Tarallo and Don Carlo Cheese.
Have you marked everything? Let's begin!
Pistachio is an ingredient that goes perfectly with a wide variety of ingredients. Last time we saw a great classic of Pasta with Pistachio Pesto, and in fact, we can say that the Pistachio is Mortadella like spaghetti with tomato - a perfect couple. Today, instead, we want to push ourselves a bit and we want to combine our Pistachio pesto with tuna, for a Sicilian and new Sicilian combo.
Let's see in detail what we need, ready?
As we mentioned in our article on Puglia, the Orecchiette with Cime di Rapa are the most famous dish of the Pugliese tradition. The Orecchiette is a tipica type of homemade pasta made, in Puglia, and strictly by hand, and in fact, this dish was really enhanced by the Pugliese families, specifically by the Apulian's grandmothers who milled kilos and kilos of Orecchiette with Cime di Rapa.
Green in skin tone, Sicilian by passport, Pistachio is certainly one of the most interesting ingredients of the year.
Pistachio, a bit like all the products that become food trends, are used in all possible ways: on pizza, with pasta, in desserts, and as dessert.
Pistachio is really a versatile product, and always an excellent product to add to your taste asset.
