Let us tell you more about it.
What does basil pesto taste like?
A high quality authentic Italian basil besto should taste fresh, earthy, nutty and a little cheesy.
The most prominent flavour should always be the fresh basil, followed by a mix of cheese and nut flavour notes.
The proper basil pesto is creamy, rich yet elegant. It doesn't need much else added because of its strong flavour.
But if you are wondering what cheese goes with pesto, I'd say stick to parmesan not to overpower the pesto or compete with it.
Genovese Pesto vs Basil Pesto
Basil pesto and green pesto are names that are used due to the ingredients and appearance of this sauce. They can be used interchangeably along with Pesto alla Genovese.
Pesto Genovese is the name given to the pesto that originated in Liguria, and we can only use it if we are using typical ingredients of the region, including the local DOP basil, cheese and extra virgin olive oil.
Which pasta goes with pesto?
Trofie pasta is what pesto is traditionally served with in Italy.
That's because this pasta is also a product that originated in the same region of Liguria, just like pesto Genovese.
Other good options are penne, fusilli, and gnocchi.
Heat sauce slowly in a saucepan, mix with pasta and serve.
Also great as:
A sauce for meat or fish dishes.
A spread on tarallini, bruschetta or crostini.
A spread on crackers and breads.
A dip for party finger food.
A sandwich filler.
An ingredient in salad dressings, stews and soups; it is fantastic with scrambled eggs; delicious if mixed with some fresh ricotta cheese and ideal to stuff ravioli or vol-au-vents.
