Basil pesto is an integral part of Italian cuisine and Italians know very well why. Its tremendous taste is made by unmistakable and healthy ingredients in the form of virgin olive oil, basil, walnuts supporting the digestion and the vitality of the body, garlic and parmesan. As I write about these combinations, my mouth is watering.
