How to use

Perfectly matched with Bavette cooked "al dente", Pesto alla Genovese is ideal to give your dishes a unique taste. To enjoy it at its best, Barilla suggests adding less salt to the cooking water and using a little of this water to dilute the Pesto. Always add the Pesto to your pasta away from direct heat.
