Originally pesto was prepared in a marble mortar with wooden pestle. We left the flavor in, but took the work out! Simply Organic Sweet Basil Pesto Mix fast, fresh and flavorful - it's basilicious! Chef suggests adding pine nuts for added taste and texture.

Try Sweet Basil Pesto Mix in our delicious Pesto Breadsticks.

Sweet Basil Pesto Mix 4.5 5 5 6
Pesto Mix Not bad for a mix, of coarse homemade is better, but Pine Nuts are so expensive. ;( June 27, 2013
Great for a quick pesto sauce. Tastes fine. I make a pesto pizza - very good on it. April 12, 2013
We triued it but just not enough taste for us. September 17, 2012
Fresh Flavor amaze your guests with this flavorful spice packet that tastes 'fresh' and not like a packet. I used egg-noodles, a chicken breast, some fresh yellow peppers and my husband kept saying "wow, this is good" January 24, 2012
Excellent Flavor I use this on whole wheat pasta and just add chicken and sun-dried tomatoes. Use two packages if you like a stronger flavor. April 8, 2011
