Belmorso Basil Pesto Large

Categories: Dips and Spreads , Pestos

A very special and versatile sauce, basil pesto is full of flavour. The basil cultivated for this sauce grows high up on the hills of Liguria; a region in the Northwest of Italy known for its perfect growing climate. This sauce is ideal with Trofie pasta, its shape allowing for the sauce to thoroughly stick to the pasta.

Sometimes called green pesto, and more commonly Pesto alla Genovese in Italy, this is a true Italian classic everyone needs in their pantry.
