Tomato Pesto


The freshest ingredients combine to produce this wonderfully intense sauce. The name Pesto comes from the word “pestare” in Italian meaning to pound, because all ingredients are pounded together. Just spoon it over pasta or use it as an ingredient in your dishes to transform an everyday meal into a rewarding Italian experience.


Mellow but intense is how to describe Saclà Tomato Pesto. A sauce that boasts fragrant Italian basil as well as Mediterranean sun-dried tomatoes, Grana Padano cheese and, as with all great pesto sauces, crushed pine kernels.


What to look for in this product:

Thick, tangy flavour that brings a rustic, authentic Italian twist to pasta sauces
•Focus on real, fresh ingredients with real flavour
•A taste of artisinal Italian pesto in every jar, not a mass-produced, artificial processed sauce.
Consistently top quality every time you open a jar


Suggested uses:

•Great sauce for pasta salad because its delicious at room temperature
•Stir it through a chunky pasta (like a good penne,) let it cling to every contour and, finally, let it rain Parmesan
•It can also give your soups, gravy and casseroles extra depth - leave aside how good it can make you look in the kitchen.
•A great sandwich spread that adds that extra gourmet dimension

In 1923 businessman Signor Secondo Ercole established SALPA (Stabilimento Astese Lavorazione Prodotti Alimentari) in the region of Piedmont, Northwest of Italy. His aim was to bring the fresh produce of the region to the world by preserving it in cans and jars.  In 1939 the corporate name changed to SACLÀ which stands for Societŏ Anonima Commercio e Lavorazione Alimentari. From early beginnings packing vegetables into cans, Saclà extended its range of products and soon flourished as one of Italy's most progressive food companies.  After more than 80 years Saclà has earned a reputation for being the forefront of authentic Italian fine food with product ranging from pickled vegetables, antipasti, and sauces for pasta.  Saclà is still a family owned company.
