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.
Basil, the flagship ingredient in the pesto recipe, has a protected designation of origin (PDO). The region where it is grown, Liguria, has a particular microclimate characterized by the presence of sea air currents, which combined with an intense sunshine, give it a harmony of aromas that cannot be found in any other variety of basil. It can be recognized by its very fragrant scent, its slightly embossed leaves, and its perfectly uniform green colour.
Non-pasteurized, Favuzzi pesto preserves all its exceptional aromas and its most attractive colour.
