This fresh, vibrant and bursting with life pesto is paired with San Remo’s Spiral Spelt Pasta. Frankly, I can’t think of a better way to eat this lively dish. The spelt pasta and the fresh herbs laden pesto together are an excellent pair.
If you haven’t made pesto before, please do. Until, I tried to make my own pesto I avoided it. Making your own, renders a truly different taste and look. For starters, it is bursting with colour, followed with the aroma of the basil and garlic. Use fresh ingredients and a good quality olive oil and if you have a food processor it is made in no time. You will discover a new found love for Pesto! so Buon Appetit.
