Bring the Italian restaurant flavours you love to your home with fresh pasta like Olivieri® Chicken & Bacon Sacchettini. Stuffed to perfection with tender chicken and savoury bacon all wrapped together in bite-sized bag shaped pasta. Add a fun and whimsical twist to your average pasta dinner, all put together in under 30 minutes.
Lightly sautéing the vegetables will give your dish a touch of extra nutrients with added taste and texture. We’ve used red and yellow bell peppers with carrots, however, if desired, use what vegetables you have available on hand or according to preference. After all, this is your meal, so feel free to get creative.
For added flavour, use capers or pickled peppers in addition to or in place of black olives. You can also use Mediterranean green olives, without the pit.
Italian food lovers may also want to dabble into an easy gnocchi recipe.
To really make your dish shine, don’t settle for any store-bought pesto variety, Olivieri® Basil & Cheese Pesto is made with quality ingredients and tastes like freshly made sauce. The taste is a bit brighter and more vibrant if compared to other jarred varieties in the dry pasta section.
Use it to add a refreshing and herbaceous touch to your pasta dishes like a Rainbow Tortellini Salad, serve as an appetizer like in these Fresh Mozzarella and Tomato Crostinis, or use it for a delicious dipping sauce.
