It’s known that Paccheri is one of the most iconic type of Italian pasta, but what it is not as known as that, is that it´s an incredibly versatile food: it can be prepared with dried tomatoes, au gratin with meat sauce, stuffed or with seafood, too.

Although the paccheri goes well with a large list of ingredients, here you have a perfect combination that is considered as a classic sicilian dish: Paccheri with sundried tomato pesto. It´s a simple and tasty dish that really deserves to be tried.

Let’s find out how to prepare this typical Sicilian dish

Preparation method

To prepare the paccheri with sundried tomato pesto, first put a pot full of water on the stovetop and bring it to a boil. This water will be used for cooking the pasta.

In the meantime, prepare a light sauté that will enhance the flavors of Nasonte’s sundried tomato pesto: put a pan on the heat, peel a clove of garlic and lightly mash it with your hands. Pour a drizzle of Vardaro extra virgin olive oil into the pan, add the garlic and brown it. Then, incorporate the ready-to-use sundried tomato pesto and let it warm up slightly.

When the water for cooking paccheri comes to a boil, add salt according to taste and then add the pasta. Stir occasionally and, after about 10 minutes, the pasta will be “al dente”.

Drain the paccheri well and add them to the previously prepared dressing.

Mix well over medium heat and serve hot.

Buon appetito!
