Pesto Trapanese with almonds recipe

pragmatic recipe

Always almonds

almonds make all the difference in this dish

A lesser known but likewise delicious pesto is ‘Trapanese’, named after a city in western Sicily. It has none of the smug the green one assumed, none of the complacent superiority, but double of its character. No pine nuts but almonds. This pesto goes well with all kinds of pasta and as a spread it is dangerously addictive.
