What is Pesto?

Pesto is a sauce that originated in Genoa, the capital city of Liguria, Italy. Traditionally, the sauce is made up of basil, garlic, pine nuts, salt, and Parmigiano-Reggiano all blended together in olive oil. Accompaniments may include the most popular past, meat, potatoes, other veggies, and my personal favorite, a spoonful directly into my mouth. YIKES, did I just say that?
