Made with...

Sacla' Classic Basil Pesto 190g

Fragrant, fresh and still our No.1 Pesto. We believe it’s all down to how we grow the leaves – under the strong Italian sunshine wafted by a soft, salty sea breeze.

To make Sacla’ Classic Basil Pesto, we pound together the fresh leaves with Grana Padano, Pecorino Romano and pine nuts. With one jar of our Basil Pesto you can create endless authentic dishes and Italian sides – from Friday night pizza and garlic bread, to prawn pasta and chicken tagliatelle.
