Having a jar of pesto handy is just what you need when you want to quickly add a burst of flavour to a dish.
Use this versatile paste as a spread on bruschetta, sandwiches or canapés; dollop it onto a char-grilled steak, chicken or seafood; swirl a little into a soup or sauce; combine it in a salad dressing or toss it through pasta or risotto and you will instantly give any dish a boost .
Pesto comes from the Italian word ‘pestare’ – to crush or pound – and the Saclà range of pestos are all made with quality fresh ingredients in a range of flavours, from the classic Basil Pesto to rich red Tomato Pesto that is full of sun-dried tomatoes, fiery Chilli Pesto and the more innovative flavours of Char-grilled Eggplant and Wild Rocket. When you experiment with the flavour range whenever you need to spread, dollop or swirl a little pesto, you will find that you can easily add variety to your cooking just by opening a jar.
