Background

This is a traditional recipe with many of the flavors of Sicily.  It makes a tasty & healthy pesto sauce that's ready in less than 30 minutes and can be served with Papa Vince Busiate Pasta.  

You can use any nuts in this recipe but Chef Federico likes to use walnuts for their nutritional profile.  Walnuts have a higher level of both anti-oxidants and omega 3 fatty acids than any other nut and can help to lower the risk of certain diseases as well as support heart and brain health and healthy aging.
