Classic Genovese Pesto is one of my pantry’s go-to’s. It packs such a burst of Italian flavor to many dishes but especially in this pasta dish. A pesto like this can easily elevate the taste and appeal of almost any food, you don’t have to prep anything. Made with 100% Italian basil, this is one of my secret weapons in the kitchen to amp up any dish. #ad
