About Trofie with Walnut Pesto & Guanciale

Please note: The picture shown is for illustration purposes only. You will receive what is listed above to cook in your kitchen. The picture indicates one of the possible combinations you can do with the products included.

Fresh: Cook for 4-5 minutes in salted boiling water.
Frozen: Cook for 5-6 minutes in salted boiling water.

  1. Dice the Guanciale into cubes and heat it in a large frying pan; take care not to burn it, but bring it to a light crisp. Once cooked, keep roughly two tablespoons of Guanciale aside.
  2. Add 2.5 litres of salted water in a large saucepan and bring to a gentle boil. Cook the Trofie for 4-5 minutes.
  3. Put the Pesto in the frying pan with the Guanciale and add in the cooked Trofie using a slotted spoon, making sure that some of the starchy pasta water gets into the frying pan with the Pesto; stir gently to emulsify the sauce. The starchy pasta water is the secret to getting a good coating of the Pesto on the pasta.
  4. Garnish this dish with a generous sprinkle of Parmigiano Reggiano and the remaining Guanciale on top.
