In our home region of Asti, peppers grow in abundance in the warm sunshine and rich fertile soil. Our favourite variety – and the one we use in this Pesto – is the famously square, fleshy Quadrato d’Asti Rosso, renowned for its sweetness. We pick them when they’re just ripe and brilliantly red, and roast them, slowly, with yellow peppers and then add fragrant basil, Grana Padano cheese and fresh garlic.
With pasta, we think 100g of pasta per quarter jar of Pesto works best or visit our recipe collection for more inspiration.
