Pesto

It’s one of my very favourite things on earth. It’s one of the simplest of pasta sauces, though it can honestly be put on anything. It’s light, it’s beyond delicious, and it should be in my mouth, right now. Traditionally made from basil, crushed garlic, pine nuts and Parmigiano-Reggiano or Pecorino blended with olive oil, it’s mind-bogglingly divine on a good linguine or trofie, an odd, hand-twisted pasta favoured in the birthplace of pesto, Genoa.

I’ve had the good fortune to have pesto in Genoa, where they take the stuff very seriously indeed, and have a habit of putting it on just about everything.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
