Basil Almond Pesto
First created in Genoa, the famous pesto alla genovese is aptly named after its method of production. The enlightened combination of fresh basil, garlic, olive oil, nuts, and cheese were pounded (pestare in Italian) together in a stone mortar with a wooden pestle until a beautifully smooth and delicious paste was achieved. Enjoy our rendition using hardy Sicilian almonds.
Bright, nostalgic flavors of Sicilian basil together with hearty, toasted almonds, this pesto illuminates every dish with the taste of summertime. Toss into your favorite pasta, salad, or dollop onto your fried egg for breakfast.
