Choose from one of two amazing sauces -
- Anfosso Pesto Con Basilico Genovese DOP - This traditional style Genovese pesto is made in Liguria Italy with PDO basil, pine nuts and extra virgin olive oil. Wonderful on roasted meats, poultry or fish. Toss with pasta and a touch of heavy cream for an amazing pesto pasta. Use it as a condiment drizzled over a Caprese salad or panini. 6.35 oz
- Classic Bolognese Sauce - By Alberto Bettini of the Michelin starred restaurant Amerigo in Savigno Italy. Made with local ingredients and slow-simmered as tradition requires. Made with Apulian tomatoes, herbs, and spices. Serve Italian style, with just enough sauce to lightly coat a half-pound of pasta. This is one of the tastiest sauces we've ever tasted. And we've tasted a few! 7.05 oz
Basil Infused Olive Oil | Galantino - From southern Apulia, the heel of the boot on a map of Italy, this aromatic olive oil is made by crushing the basil with the olives to create a pungent and herbaceous cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil. Use it to make salad dressings, pasta sauces, or anywhere extra virgin olive oil is used. Great to dip bread in, too. 4.5 fl oz
The Spoon - This hand-crafted olive wood spoon was designed in Italy and made in Tunisia. All spoons vary in color and measurement. Guaranteed to class up your stovetop for years to come. One is included.
Paula’s Italian grandmother always stirred the sauce with a giant wooden spoon. We recommend the same approach.
