“Fresh, creamy, and delicious, this pesto is sure to satisfy you. One of the things we love about pesto is that it is so easy to prepare but adds such a distinctive and sophisticated touch to any meal. Serve pesto on toasted French bread, with pizza, sandwiches, pasta or chicken. We hope you enjoy as much as we do!”
