    Sicilian Pesto Pasta


     

    Ingredients:

    • 1 package Premio Italian Sausage (Hot is ideal but sweet works too)
    • 4 cups basil leaves
    • 1 Tbsp. fresh oregano
    • ½ cup olive oil
    • ½ cup grated parmesan cheese
    • 1 cup roasted sliced almonds
    • 2 cups roasted grape tomatoes
    • 3 cloves roasted garlic
    • Pinch red pepper flakes 

    How to Make Sicilian Pesto Pasta:

    1. In a pan covered with tinfoil, roast the grape tomatoes with garlic and olive oil for approximately 30 minutes at 350 degrees (F). 
    2. While roasting, blend the basil, oregano, cheese and almonds; slowly add the oil (I usually will save a handful of nuts for added crunch at the end).  Once tomatoes are done, mash them for a few seconds, to break them up a bit; add to the pesto.
    3. Remove casings from Premio sausage and in a pan, fry with the drippings from the tomato pan and olive oil; cook for about 6-7 minutes over high heat (do not overcook!).  Combine and finish with lots of red pepper flakes, almonds and sea salt.
