Roi- Italian Green Pesto Sauce

7.10 incl.VAT

Ligurian Pesto (180 gr.) is an ancient Ligurian sauce made from basil, garlic and pine nuts and “Roi” extra virgin olive oil. Pasta al pesto is a classic summertime Italian recipe. It is originally from Genova in the Liguria region of northern Italy but is nowadays widespread throughout the country.

The name pesto comes from the Italian word pestare (to crush) traditionally the ingredients were blended using a marble mortar and a wooden pestle. The simplicity of this recipe requires the use of high quality tasty ingredients.  Any pasta shape will work but traditionally trofie or linguine work best.

ROI is especially known for their olive production, where the olive grove and the flavour of the olives are influenced by the surrounding Mediterranean woodland and chestnut trees, the sea and wild herbs. The olive mill is currently composed of the traditional mill with a granite millstone and two presses, as well as a newly designed mill with a continuous cycle and cold extraction.

Taste Profile: salty, herbal, rich, cheesy, bright.
