Basil pesto pasta

Basil pesto pasta

If you love basil pesto, don't miss out our product from Hybla company. This smells like homemade when opened. Basil pesto is one of my earliest childhood food memories, all thanks to my mom, who made this recipe a staple in our home. The sauce is rich in flavour, yet it has only few ingredients, allowing the fresh basil to take on the starring role.
