Trofie al Pesto Genovese Dinner Kit

Trofie al Pesto is one of the most famous dishes of the Ligurian Tradition, made with trofie pasta and basil pesto, rich in taste and easy to prepare. The authentic Pesto Genovese is made with freshly-ground D.O.P. Genovese Basil, Ligurian extra virgin olive oil, pine nuts, salt and garlic. Some recipes also include Parmigiano Reggiano cheese. Trofie, also typical of the Ligurian cuisine, have a twisted spiral shape that perfectly blends with the pesto sauce. 

The kit contains:

- 1 Acqua & Semola Fresh Italian Trofie Pasta 1.1lb (500g)

- 1 Ligurian Basil Pesto Jar 6.3oz (180g)

- Ligurian D.O.P. Extra Virgin Olive Oil 16.9fl oz (500ml)


Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook the pasta until "al dente" (4-5 minutes). Place the pesto sauce in a large bowl. Drain the pasta and reserve one cup of cooking water. Toss the pasta into the bowl and mix until blended by adding some cooking water to thin the pesto sauce. Finish with a drizzle of Ligurian extra virgin olive oil, grated Parmigiano Reggiano (optional) and fresh basil. Serve and enjoy!
