Pesto Genovese Pesto Sauce

Pesto Genovese – made with 100% Italian basil and PDO Parmigiano Reggiano. Only the best ingredients can bring you the true taste of Italy.

Prepared without preservatives, this combination of 100% Italian Basil, and the authentic taste of PDO Parmigiano Reggiano, will bring a burst of flavour to your pasta dish.

Perfect for ...

Perfectly matched with 'al dente' Linguine, Pesto 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.
