Gouda Red Pesto
Red pesto cheese is a flavorful and colorful variety of cheese that is infused with the taste of sun-dried tomatoes and basil, similar to the popular Italian pasta sauce, “”pasta alla Norma””. The cheese has a bright red color and is packed with savory flavors that make it a popular ingredient in many dishes.
The cheese is typically made by blending fresh basil, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, and Parmesan cheese into a smooth paste. This paste is then added to the cheese during the cheese-making process to infuse it with the unique taste and vibrant color of the red pesto.
One of the great things about red pesto cheese is its versatility. It can be used as a spread on sandwiches, as a topping for pizzas, or as a flavoring in sauces and dips. It pairs particularly well with pasta dishes, such as fusilli or penne, where it can add a rich and flavorful twist to a simple tomato sauce.
When shopping for red pesto cheese, look for a high-quality brand that uses fresh ingredients and has a bright red color. The cheese should be smooth and creamy, with a subtle but distinct pesto flavor.
