Some facts about this creamy Italian sauce:
- ‘Pesto’ literally means ‘pounded’. And that’s exactly how pesto was originally made: in a mortar with a pestle. Many Italians still swear by this authentic method of preparation.
- Genovese indicates where the pesto comes from, namely from Genoa, the capital of the Liguria region.
- Did you think that red pesto also comes from Northern Italy? Nothing is less true. Pesto Rosso originated in the southern region of Sicily.
The Italians themselves eat pesto mainly because of the pasta, but this creamy sauce actually goes with almost everything. For example, spread some pesto over your pizza or use this sauce with tasty antipasti dishes. Pesto is also not a punishment on toast, on bread or as a dressing for a salad.
