This week's limited edition "Creste Di Gallo" pasta is an exceptional pasta shape that closely resembles the crest of a rooster. Creste Di Galli translates to “rooster crest.” It has a tubular body with a ruffled-edged curve. With its ideal shape, it can work well with a wide range of sauces including meaty and chunky ones. This week's beautiful sun-dried tomato pesto is a case in point.
To prepare our pesto, we've searched far and wide for Italy's finest sun-dried tomatoes, which we find in the prime tomato fields of Puglia; in the small comune of San Pietro Vernotico, specifically. Here, in Italy's driest region, tomatoes are left out to dry out in the unrelenting heat of the sun. Aside from taking on a beautiful flavour, these sun-kissed beauties are also a concentrated source of nutrients, providing vitamins C and K, iron, and lycopene, an antioxidant associated with lower risk of certain cancers.
