How to Make Authentic Pasta con Pesto Genovese?

Our Italian Pasta con Pesto Genovese meal kit gets you started with quality ingredients, and our easy-to-follow recipe provides you with the methodology to prepare this fantastic green sauce with pasta (mortar and pestle not required! This can easily be made in a blender or food processor as well).
Origins of Pesto Genovese
With its origins in the northwestern coastal city of Genova, the word for pesto actually comes from "pestâ," the Genovese dialect word that means "to grind", "to crush." Traditionally made with a mortar and pestle, (if you have one at home, try it!), households all across Italy have their own recipe for this herbal, bright-tasting sauce. When we make this recipe at home, we follow the recipe from the Genoese Pesto Consortium -- the organization that dictates what real pesto really is! This recipe is included in the Pasta con Pesto Genovese meal kit so you can make the real deal right from your kitchen.
