In this famous Barilla pesto, the freshest basil leaves in Liguria are combined with the delicious taste of Pecorino Romano and Grana Padano cheese. Prepared without preservatives, this is the most natural pesto, with the unmistakeable fragrance of summer.
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.
To prepare a classic Italian recipe, we suggest cooking a cubed potato and a bunch of green beans in the cooking water together with your pasta, before combining with Pesto alla Genovese.
