True Italian Genovese pesto. Trentasette, a small producer in Italy, starts with the freshest ingredients; fresh basil, garlic, pine nuts, and olive oil . . . then makes small batches with traditional recipes. Genovese pesto–the traditional basil pesto most are familiar with is a classic which adds pizzaz to everything from pasta to flatbread to a perfect addition to cream cheese or sour cream for cocktail hours snacks. Yes, of course, you could make your own, but this one is really good, and all you have to do is open the jar! It’s easy to turn your nose up at prepared pesto . . . but this one is worth a try–it tastes fresh and flavorful with no “off” or processed flavors. Try it for yourself!
This small Italian producer utilizes the finest from Italian culinary staples: fresh Genovese basil, Parmesan and Romano cheeses, pine nuts, and olive oil. These are crafted in small batches in classic Italian tradition. ENJOY. An excellent prepared product--why make your own when this is so good?
This 6.35 oz jar is the perfect size to dress a pound of pasta or serve with bruschetta and cheeses. It will be a welcome addition to your pantry. Refrigerate after opening. As with all pestos, pour some fresh oil on top to retain freshness and color.
For a quick appetizer . . . take some mini-mozzarella balls (if you can find the really small ones often called mozzarella pearls, great if not use the smallest ones you can OR cut fresh mozzarella into bite-size pieces). Toss with Trentasette Genovese pesto. Serve on an attractive plate with toothpicks and grape tomatoes. A no-mess bruschetta! Don't forget a nice Chianti!
