WAY TOO SPICY
yeah I get it, calabrese is supposed to have some spice but the kick is much too strong, and worse yet no sweetness to balance it out.. I mean with the high % of red pepper i expected some sweetness especially being italian produce.. needs so much more flavour in my opinion. won't be buying again. Expensive too.
A lovely sauce for pasta, I bought at special price and am ordering more. Garafalo pasta is really good too.
this is not pesto
when you stock so many makes of pesto why was I sent this as a substitute . I know have to go shopping as it's a key ingredient in todays meal.
This is a lovely pesto. My son cant eat pine nuts or cashews so this is a great nut free option. Really tasty and moreish.
I bought this based on the reviews and have to admit I wasn't blown away by it. It's blander than it should be. I can't taste much spice.
Delicious for homemade pizza
I make my own pizza dough and use this pesto as a base, then top with grated cheese. Sometimes I add black olives and/or mushrooms. It has slight heat but not hot. This pesto makes a delicious pizza.
