Spreading the Love with Pesto Sauce
Pesto sauce is capable of many things – first and foremost it’s important to realize that even the smallest dab of this flavorful sauce can transform a dish into something really special. Garlic, basil, and olive oil, what’s not to love?
Our Roma line of pesto sauces has a plethora of flavors to keep your dishes fresh and your flavors bold. Aside from the traditional pesto sauces we all know and love (we have varieties with pine nuts and without), the Roma brand also has fun new flavor combinations – a Sun Dried Tomato and Garlic pesto, a Southwest Chipotle pesto, and a Cilantro Pesto.
Just when you thought you had the pesto flavors figured out, right? We encourage you to experiment with these items in your pasta dishes, on top of burgers, combined with mayo for a sandwich spread, drizzled on top of a beautiful caprese salad, or spread on an appetizer plate for eye appeal and a little extra flavor. Roma pesto sauces can be mixed with mayonnaise, sour cream, barbeque sauce, mustard, ranch, or other dressings to create a delicious signature appetizer dip or sandwich spread.
