Fresh, fragrant Italian basil is still the hero of this recipe, grown in the coastal region near Liguria, where the warm sunshine and moist sea breezes give the leaves an unmistakable perfume and intense flavour. To create this reduced fat Pesto, we’ve cut back a bit on the oil and cheese in the recipe, and taken special care to ensure that it has the same great taste and texture as our No.1 Classic Basil Pesto.
In Liguria, Pesto is enjoyed with testaroli, trofie or linguine pasta and is usually served with green beans and potatoes to create ‘Pesto Alla Genovese’.
Be in the know… Pesto was originally made to preserve the abundance of local Summer ingredients throughout the Winter months.
