NO-BAKE Pasta Sauce Recipe – Sicilian Pesto

This Sicilian tomato pesto is also known as “Pesto alla Trapanese" and is great in the summer!

Pesto alla Trapanese is made with almonds as opposed to pine nuts. This sauce is multifunctional and can be used in pasta, on bread, or even on chicken! The fresh flavors really scream “summer”.
