Sicilian basil pesto with Fusilli
The Sicilian Version of the Famous Basil Pesto
In every Italian Region, there is a variant, made with few different ingredients, depending on what offers the territory.
Sicily is famous to produce the most prestigious Almonds of the world called (Pizzuta di Avola). All almonds that grow in Sicily have naturally a hard shell that protects the fruit from fungus and mycotoxins.
From Our Kitchen:

2. Sun-dried Cherry tomatoes in Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Iblei Months Region ( Sicily ) | 6.7 oz
These tomatoes are naturally sweet and once dried they are preserved using the Award Winning (Gold Metal 2018 NY) Extra Virgin Olive Oil made in Italy by Frantoi Cutrera.
This jar preserves the best ingredients sourced in Sicily, an incredible land famous for the rich taste and quality of its farm-produced crops and goods, including fruits and vegetables – meats, grains, then processed according to the traditional Mediterranean artisanal process.
