Pesto rosso is a general term for red varities of pesto. Pesto alla siciliana is a specific type of pesto. Here we normally make pesto rosso of sun-dried tomatoes, roasted red peppers, sunseed oil/olive oil, pine nuts or cashew nuts, garlic and parmesan (sometimes a little basil).

Using dried tomatoes for pesto in addition/substitution of basil is something becoming more and more popular in Italy, as long as using pistachios for it (and for many other things). however, for almost an eternity, pesto in Italy was always referred to the Genoan tradition, as @Sindo said

What's the best selling beverage (preferentially non-alcoholic) unique to your country? In Brazil we all drink guaraná, and even Fanta decided to create their own soda version of the drink.

Pesto alla genovese is the only kind of pesto I am aware of, so we do not even have to specify "alla genovese", because that's the only one you can talk about if you just say "pesto" :p But I am not a chef so maybe there are other kinds of "pesto" I am not aware of :lol:

 

Or maybe you call "pesto" what we call "sugo" (general word for a sauce you put on pasta), there are hundreds of different kind of "sugo".

So  in a nutshell, this is not really Italian, though it says "prodotto in Italia"?

Maybe it's the "pesto alla siciliana"..Never heard of it and never tasted it though (and honestly all the souces in glass bottles are pretty horrible here :lol:)

All these Italian dishes makes me really hungry.:p I will probably have Fusilli al pesto rosso with some vegetables on the side later. 

 

I ended up with pasta and pesto as well, though I went with alla Genovese (with some chicken and a bit of vegetables) :p

I'm almost sure that it isn't the pesto alla siciliana becouse i don't see the ricotta.... It seems more a sort of pesto of tomato and nothing more :p

I never thought the word "pesto" would be mentioned so many times on a sports forum. :lol: (Before today, "pesto" hadn't been mentioned on the forum. Now it has been 12 times :p.)

 

Edit: Well 13 after this post.

Don't be so sure when they write "italian cheeses" they do not include ricotta :lol:

Bertolli is a relatively famous Italian brand, although it was recently (2014 maybe) bought by a Japanese corporation. If it is written made in Italy, almost surely it is. If it something that is typical of Italy, maybe it is but I'm not aware of. Most probably, it can be something sold as pesto as it is a kind of brand already fidelised :)

 

PS: sometimes, someone adds tomato sauce to pesto: as far as I know, it is made in a pizzeria franchising quite famous in Italy. Maybe this is just pesto to which sauce was added :D
