I THOUGHT I WAS an expert at making my own pesto. I had giant basil plants, excellent olive oil, authentic Parmesan and pine nuts. My pesto was good.
Then I opened a tub of Romarsi Pesto To Go basil pesto and stirred it into a serving of pasta. So good. Less oily, richer and more flavor-dense than any I've made myself. Tough to admit, but true. Rrrrr. I won't stop trying to make pesto, but if you are, like me, slightly pesto-challenged, or if you don't even care to try making it yourself, look for Romarsi's Basil Pesto at Whole Foods. It's easier to find on the East Coast, but it's making it's way to stores here in California. In addition to the basil pesto, Romarsi makes a killer sundried tomato pesto. If you spot it, be sure to get a tub. You won't be disappointed.
