VENDOR OF THE WEEK

Bob Silvestri is a proud member of the Roseland Farmer’s Market Family. Bob has been with us from season one and is a “market favorite”. Once you’ve tried Romarsi you’ll be hooked. Bob says “our mission is to bring you all natural gourmet pesto sauce made from garden fresh basil”. Pesto To Go uses no preservatives, ships frozen, and is cholesterol free.

Romarsi’s Pesto To Go grew from Bob’s personal passion of gardening. Ernestina, his mother, introduced him to her recipe for pesto according to Mary Silvestri, Owner and Founder

Their natural gourmet pesto is available in a number of sizes. They also make a delicious Basil Pesto Pizza. To purchase their product, you can visit one of their many retail locations, order online or, of course, stop by the Roseland Farmers’ Market.

Romarsi supports local farmers, who supply their basil, when in season. In fact, Romarsi has entered into a partnership with St. Benedict’s School in Newark, New Jersey, to supply them with basil during the year. The students grow basil on site and are excited to be part of their pesto family. Non-seasonal basil is supplied by the freshest sources available at the time. Pesto – the “other” sauce.

Many people are not familiar with pesto, and Romarsi would like to change that. There’s the red sauce (tomato), the white sauce (Alfredo) and finally the green sauce – pesto. Now the flag of Italy is complete! If you’re tired of the same “red” sauce, it’s time to make it green – make it pesto. Kids will love it, too. Romarsi’s all natural Pesto To Go is perfect as an appetizer or main entrée. The choices are infinite – pasta, chicken, seafood, rice, pizza, vegetables, crusty bread, etc. It’s great to use as a spread on panini’s and wraps or mixed in cream cheese with a bagel. Soups and party dips come alive with a dollop of pesto. Try some layered between tomatoes and fresh mozzarella. Pesto To Go is a flavorful addition to grilling and BBQ’s. It can also be used in a cold pasta salad and as a complement on bruschetta. The pestobilities are endless!
