Pesto or pesto all 'Albanese is a sauce made from Olive Oil Extra Virgin from OILBA.
The ingredients are crushed together in an old-fashioned stone mortar. Hence the name 'pesto' = stamped. The product has a smooth texture.
You can also replace sea salt with salted anchovies. This gives the pesto a very tasty taste.
Pesto can be combined well with pasta dishes, fish dishes or used in salads and sandwiches.
Pesto is often confused with or placed with Tapenade. Tapenade, however, contains capers and often also olives.
