A blend of specially selected Italian basil, finely balanced with Parmigiano Reggiano PDO, for a surprisingly creamy texture and a delicious taste.
A new jar, but the same Pesto Barilla you've always loved.
Perfect for ...
Perfectly matched with 'al dente' Linguine, Pesto alla Genovese is ideal to give your dish a remarkable 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 stir the Pesto through your pasta away from direct heat.
