Really Good!

This is probably the best fresh pesto I have had! Not too oily, salty or thin! A nice thick and easy to stir in sauce with plenty of pine nuts and not too many ingredients! Good to see a pesto sauce that vegetarians can also enjoy - and without the use of eggs! Please don't discontinue this!

Rating: 5 star out of 5


Nearly as good as my husband's fresh pesto sauce, impressive!

Really tasty pesto, not too overpowering. Better than M&S fresh pesto.

Gorgeously tasty.....

It really is the best Pesto Sauce we have tasted....stired into fresh pasta with a handful of bacon pieces, onions a scattering of extra pine-nuts it doesn't need the extra - I just like an excuse for pine-nuts - delicious - every plate was empty.....

Puff pastry is ideal for canapés. Try twisted with cream cheese and pesto then baked until crispy.

Nigella Lawson's Pea & Pesto Soup

Nigella Lawson's Pea & Pesto Soup

Providing something hot to eat is the hardest challenge (on the run), and although flasks of soup provide scope for spillage and mess, I fell they are worth the risk. This soup - my all-time most-requested - has the bonus, too of being so simple to make, you can do it while you stumble about the kitchen at breakfast. While you can make it with pesto from a jar, the difference when you use the "fresh" stuff in a tub that you find in chiller cabinets in the supermarkets is astonishing. I think soups taste better made in a blender rather than a food processor, and it's best to use a blender which has a central plug in the lid that you can remove to stop pressure building up - which, in turn, prevents you getting soup all over you or your walls. That would not be a good start to the day.
