To Our Valued Customers:

There was a recall on fresh whole red, white, and yellow onions imported from Chihuahua, Mexico on October 20th, 2021. Our company did not purchase from any of the distributors named in this incident nor did we purchase product imported from Chihuahua, Mexico. Our onions are grown fresh right here in NV and shipped direct to stores. We do not have any association whatsoever with the parties that have been implicated in this recall. The onions in this incident are not from our company. Peri & Sons Farms onions are safe for consumption.

Our internal food safety standards and practices require that all onions, red, white, sweets and yellows, sold from our farms and packing shed facilities carry a certificate of analysis with negative results for both Salmonella and E. coli. We have provided documentation of our testing analysis for your reference as attachments. See Certificates of Analysis. (COA). Additionally, verification of our food safety certifications can be found here: www.PeriandSons.com/Onions.

Chicken & Pasta with Basil-Mint Pesto
For the pesto:
1/2 cup pine nuts or chopped walnuts, lightly toasted
4 garlic cloves, chopped
1 1/2 cups fresh Italian basil leaves, tightly packed
1/2 cup fresh mint leaves, tightly packed
1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup olive oil
Salt, to taste

Remaining ingredients:
8 ounces spaghetti or linguine noodles
1 large cooked chicken breast, sliced
1/2 yellow onion, sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
Kernels from 1 ear of fresh corn
1/2 cup frozen peas
Freshly shaved parmesan cheese, cracked black pepper, chopped walnuts or pine nuts and fresh basil leaves, for garnish
Make the pesto: Add nuts, garlic, basil, mint and cheese to a small food processor. Pulse until blended. With the food processor running, slowly drizzle in olive oil and blend until the mixture becomes a finely chopped sauce. Remove pesto to a storage container, season to taste with salt and set aside.

Cook pasta to al dente according to package directions. When pasta is cooked, drain and set aside, reserving about 1/2 cup of the pasta water.

While pasta is cooking, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil to medium-high in a large, heavy skillet. Add onions and cook for 4-5 minutes, until the onion begins to brown on the edges. Reduce heat to medium and add in pasta, pasta water and 1/2 cup pesto. Cook for 4-5 minutes, until the sauce begins to thicken. Add in chicken, corn and peas. Cook for 2 more minutes until all ingredients are cooked through.

To serve, add about half of the pasta equally to 2 serving dishes. Garnish with pepper, cheese, nuts and herbs.
