Peculiar features and aromas

The creamy, not too thick consistency of our Walnut Sauce indicates just how versatile it is.



Characteristic walnut color, slightly toned down and variegated by the cheese and ricotta.



Very delicate, with the sweet taste of the walnuts skillfully balanced with just the right amount of the other quality ingredients, which add flavor and a smooth, creamy texture, while letting the main ingredient shine through.



The first aroma perceived is walnut, followed by our Olive Oil, perfectly blended with the cheese.

A pleasantly delicate, exotic recipe

Walnut sauce was already known to the ancient Persians, and over the centuries its use spread to Oriental and Balkan cuisine. There are two stories of the arrival of the recipe in Liguria: according to the first, around 1500, at the time of the Maritime Republics, the recipe, if not the actual sauce, was brought by the Genoese across the sea; the second indicates that walnut sauce was invented in the Rapallo area to counter the bitter taste of the wild herbs used in filled pasta.

Get inspired

Instead of the thicker, more compact traditional recipe, we’ve chosen a creamier, more delicate version. This is why our Walnut Sauce is perfect with everything: pasta, main courses and side dishes.


Perfect for:

  • adding extra flavor to a meat main course
  • a dish of filled fresh pasta
  • enlivening a pear and goat’s cheese salad
  • bringing a delicious touch to grilled white polenta
  • a calzone filling along with mozzarella, speck and ricotta
