Pesto is a versatile sauce that is not only good for you, but tastes great too!
With each individual ingredient offering healthy benefits, pesto is a green sauce that everyone should make a part of his or her diet. Here at The Brownstone, we use Pesto for many of our dishes including The Pesto Sausage Omelet and The Sun-dried Tomato Omelet.
Pesto is a raw sauce that originated in Genoa, Italy, and was traditionally used with pastas.
Made with basil, salt, garlic, extra virgin olive oil, pine nuts and Parmesan cheese, the flavors burst from each ingredient but complement each other nicely.
The health benefits of basil come from the ingredients that create the sauce. Basil has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory qualities and contains vitamins, iron and calcium. Extra virgin olive oil contains vitamin E and has natural antioxidants to help fight cancers and heart disease. Garlic also offers antioxidant protection and can lower blood pressure. Pine nuts and cheese offer proteins and monounsaturated fats. Healthy ingredients promote a healthy lifestyle, without sacrificing any flavor
