Description
 
There is a movement in Italy to restrict the title of "pesto" only to products from Liguria, where Genova is the capital. Basil grown along the steep coastline in this part of northern Italy is sweet, and when mixed with the buttery and delicate Ligurian extra virgin olive oil, pine nuts, walnuts, garlic and Grana Padano cheese, the result is an exquisitely well-balanced pesto that many say is "the best pesto I've ever had!"

PAIRING SUGGESTIONS:
There are so many uses for our Pesto alla Genovese. It is ideal with pasta from Liguria, such as our Trofie or Croxetti. Serve it with whole pine nuts and Parmesan cheese as a scrumptious finish. Our Pesto alla Genovese also makes the perfect accompaniment to grilled vegetables, especially zucchini or eggplant. And of course, it is delicious spread over toasted baguette! Serve with creamy goat cheese and a drizzle of our Italian Pescarese extra virgin olive oil for an easy and decadent appetizer.
