Pasta with pesto
We prepared pasta with salmon, dried tomatoes and pesto.
Green pesto or pesto alla genovese is a typical Italian sauce made of basil, garlic, pine nuts and hard cheese blended with oil olive. It is one of the most traditional Italian sauces, with Bolognese and some others. Pesto originated in Genoa, the capital of the region of Liguria.
Did you know that the word pesto comes from the verb "to pound/crush"? Pesto comes to mean something like "ingredients crushed".
