Recipe Description

We are spoilt for choice when it comes to pasta – fettuccini, linguini, fusilli, ravioli, gnocchi.

Apart from the different types of pasta, we can also pick from a wide range of sauces – carbonara, tomato, aglio oglio – to add variety to our pasta dishes.

Pesto is not just a delicious addition to the pasta sauce family but is also a versatile base for other foods.

It can be used to marinade chicken, a base for pizzas to substitute the traditional tomato base, or it can even be used as a sauce in sandwiches.
