Introducing new Barilla Creamy Genovese Pesto Sauce. Welcome to the world of PASTAbilities with creamy pesto sauce that is bursting with flavourful ingredients!
Did you know? Pesto is “a meal for today” as it is normally bought and used on the same day: 66% of shoppers consume pesto after three hours of purchase.
I received a jar of the new Barilla Creamy Genovese Pesto Sauce to try, and upon opening, I was sure that it would have a strong aroma. Surprisingly, I found the pesto to have a subtle scent of garlic and basil, but not cheese or pine nuts. The consistency is thick enough to stick to the chicken perfectly during grilling but thin enough to toss with some cooked noodles or spaghetti squash.
I decide to make a quick and easy chicken and spaghetti diner. I marinated chicken breast in pesto sauce for about an hour. Then I tossed it over freshly cooked spaghetti and garnished it with sun-dried tomatoes. Boom, dinner!
Since I had some pesto leftover, I mixed the rest in with some veggies the next day for lunch, delish!
Barilla Creamy Genovese Pesto is a versatile product that can be used in a variety of ways and does not need to be heated before use. Here are some delicious options:
- Stirring into warm pasta and grains (one jar to one 16-ounce box of pasta)
- Spreading onto sandwiches or toast
- Marinating meats and vegetables
- Using as a dip for veggies and pita chips
Made with basil, garlic, and freshly grated Italian cheese, the new Barilla Creamy Genovese Pesto Sauce adds a blast of flavor to pasta, pizza, salads, fish, and more. I put together this delicious dish with just a few ingredients my family loves. This delicious sauce is the perfect way to add a fresh twist to your next meal!
