Basil Pesto with Italian Herbs Olive Oil

A classic Italian sauce, full of fresh basil, that is enhanced by our herbaceous Italian Herbs Natural Flavor Infused Olive Oil. This recipe can be easily doubled or even tripled and can be made ahead and stored in the refrigerator for up to a week or in the freezer for 3-4 months! Naturally we paired this vibrant basil pesto with our Luciana Mosconi Fettucine Pasta.

Basil pesto is a fresh, aromatic and wildly flavorful sauce that can be used on all sorts of dishes—fish, chicken, pizza and more.
