With origins dating back to ancient Rome, the word “Pesto” comes from the Genoese verb pestâ (Italian: pestare), which means “to pound” or “to crush”. This is an easy and versatile sauce that can be used in a variety of medicated edibles. From pasta to pizza, Truffles and Cheese Pesto is a great addition to any evening meal to aid with pain relief and sleep.
