Originating from Genoa, the capital city of Liguria 🇮🇹 Pesto ☘ alla Genovese is the ultimate go-to Pasta 🍝 dish when you’re craving something creamy, yet light 🥰
...
Fun fact: the recipe of pesto goes back ⌛ as far as the Roman age 🧐 The name of the sauce refers to the Genovese verb ‘pestâ’ 🤓, which means to pound or to crush in reference to the original method of preparation - with a pestle and mortar 🤔
...
What’s your go-to pesto? 😀 Are you a Genovese fan or do you have other preferences?👇🏼
