Pesto is a word whose meaning traces back to the Italian verb Pesta, meaning to pound or crush. In fact, a pestle (think mortar and pestle) shares the same latin root. Thus, it should be no surprise that Pesto can refer to any product that was pounded or crushed into a sauce or paste. However, modern Pesto is actually made by grinding the ingredients rather than pounding them. The grinding of the ingredients releases their full aroma and flavor. The most typical Pesto is Genovese Basil Pesto, named after Genoa, Italy, its place of origin. This famous Pesto came on the scene in the 16th century. Another common Pesto Sauce is Red Pesto, named from basil and sundried tomatoes. While Pesto is most commonly used as a topping for pasta, it is also excellent as a spread or dip. Make your typical meal into an Italian experience by adding Pesto as an accompaniment to steak, poultry or fish.
