Green Pesto

Traditional Italian Sauce

Genoese Pesto is a traditional dressing from Liguria, specifically from Genoa. It is a delicious sauce made with Italian basil combined with a strong note of garlic and pine nuts. Thanks to its intense green colour and fresh aroma, it is surely one of the most loved Italian sauces.
