Pesto is one of those foods that can be added to just about anything you can think of. Barilla Creamy Genovese Pesto, made with Italian basil and freshly grated Italian cheese, is incredibly versatile in that it can be used both straight from the jar or cooked into many recipes. 

One way I like to use pesto is to mix it into pasta salads. Typically a tri-color pasta with tomatoes and mozzarella cheese. If you like going the pasta route, you can mix it into warm pasta as well and serve with a garden salad on the side. I also love using this creamy basil pesto as a sauce for my thin crust pizza topped with mozzarella and tomatoes. 

Other great options are to use it as a marinade, enjoy as a dip for crackers, chips and veggies, spread on toast or sandwiches, and many more. You can discover more great recipes at
