Favuzzi Basil Pesto
Favuzzi Pesto makes no compromises: Containing only fresh basil and no other fresh herbs, it reveals the authentic flavour of this emblematic preparation of Italian cuisine. Non-pasteurized, it preserves the intensity of the beautiful dark green colour typical of Genoese basil, as well as all the aromatic complexity and salty taste of Parmigiano Reggiano PDO and Pecorino Romano PDO. Its texture is pleasant, both thick and fluid.
A must in the Genoa region, pesto is used to season primi piatti such as gnocchi, minestrone alla Genovese, a whole vegetable soup flavoured with olive oil, risotto or, more commonly, pasta. Allow 360 g of pasta for our 180 g pesto size.
You can use Favuzzi Pesto to make tomato and mozzarella sandwiches, summer soups, zucchini or eggplant fritter dips, and pizza toppings.
