Pasta di Pesto

Did you know? Pesto was invented in Liguria,  a coastal region of north western Italy. Its capital is Genoa and was home to Vittorio Sattui  in the village of Carsi.  We like to believe that  the Sattui family could have been the “Pesto Pioneers!” The Pesta di pesto is our featured item in the deli as we continue our 125th Anniversary Celebration.   Come on by and try some for yourself!
