There are so many reasons to love Genoa but in matters of sauce their Pesto Genovese personifies the genius of the Italian kitchen: delicious, fresh, elegant and with great simplicity. This sauce is made using certified-D.O.P.*basil from Liguria where pesto was invented! Unbelievably fresh tasting.
IT IS NOT RECOMMEND TO PRE-HEAT THIS SAUCE. It is already fully cooked. The concentrated yet delicate taste will be altered in pre-heating. It is at its very best when poured directly from the jar-- unheated-- on hot, steaming, strained pasta. Yet, it can also be an ideal bruschetta topping or meat-relish. If you feel you must preheat, a ban marie pan is the safest option. Each jar is sufficient for one pound of pasta. In the Italian style, the pasta is coated in sauce, and not drowning in it.
You can improvise an add fresh sautéed vegetables or sautéed meat—but we recommend to first try it alone!
