Think of pesto as an aromatic herb paste which is traditionally made from fresh basil, garlic, parmesan cheese, pine nuts and Olive Oil. These vibrant pestos are used often in dishes like lasagna, antipasti such as bruschetta or swirled into sauces to enhance overall flavor. Pesto has become more popular in North America since the 1980s.

Pesto has its origins in Liguria, Italy where people have been making it for years from the brilliant green basil that grows wild on the hillsides. You will be glad to know that flavorful variations of pesto can be made with other herbs like cilantro or mint.
