Italian Pasta Pesto 🇮🇹
By CookUp • Issue #1 • View online
This week we’ll dive into Italian pasta pesto. The original dish pesto alla genovese is a sauce from Genoa, the capital city of Liguria in Italy. The noun pesto is a generic term for anything that is made by pounding. It traditionally consists of roasted pine nuts, basil leaves, Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, some garlic and lots of extra-virgin olive oil.
Pesto comes in a variety of recipes, some traditional and some modern, and is commonly used on pasta. This seemingly simple dish has a couple of tricks up its sleeve. Let’s get to it and explore different ways to cook up some delicious pasta pesto of your own.
