Our bright red pesto, made from our colourful sun-dried tomatoes, has a melt-in-the-mouth texture and the delicate flavour of Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and almonds.
A must in the Genoa region, pesto is used to season primi piatti such as gnocchi, minestrone alla Genovese, a whole vegetable soup flavoured with olive oil, risotto or, more commonly, pasta. Allow 360 g of pasta for our 180 g pesto size.
You can use Favuzzi Pesto to make tomato and mozzarella sandwiches, summer soups, zucchini or eggplant fritter dips, and pizza toppings.
