Classic pesto

Description

Close your eyes and conjure up the aroma of freshly picked basil, the rich release of crushed pine kernels and a hit of newly grated Grana Padano cheese. These are the signature notes of our classic green pesto. Stir it through a steaming plate of pasta and shower with parmesan. It’s equally welcome when it’s spooned over new potatoes, in place of butter, or generously stuffed under the skin of a chicken breast before roasting.
