Basil Pesto

Purely Pesto’s Basil Pesto is the classic flavour, made with aromatic basil and Grana Padano cheese. Toss this pesto through spaghetti for a speedy dinner, drizzle over roasted courgettes for a simple salad, spread over puff pastry for a homemade tart, or dot over sourdough pizzas. 

Cashew nuts not only give this Great Taste award winning pesto a slightly creamy flavour, they offer a gentle bite for texture. 

Purely Pesto began in 2006, after owner Gavin took a six month trip around Italy, tasting the best pesto in every town in the country. When he returned, he made it his mission to create his own fresh pesto. Now, Purely Pesto offers olives and antipasti alongside their pesto range.  

All the products are made to order, starting on a Monday afternoon, and shipped out fresh on a Wednesday. The shelf life of the pesto is three weeks from delivery, and it can also be frozen.
