La Favorita Rocket Pesto
La Favorita rocket pesto makes a quick pasta dish with a peppery kick. Stir through freshly cooked pasta and top with torn mozzarella or a grating of parmesan.
The rocket pesto is also a great filling for a panini. Spread the pesto over the bread and top with slices of mozzarella and cherry tomato. You can also mix the rocket pesto with ricotta and use as a filling for homemade ravioli.
La Favorita was born just after the second world war. The founder began by trading local Ligurian specialities – such as chestnuts and mushrooms – for anchovies from local fishermen. The enterprise grew and La Favorita began selling sauces and preserves made from local produce. Every product is carefully and lovingly worked to give the customer the feeling that they’re eating something ‘just picked’.
La Favorita take inspiration from traditional Ligurian and Piedmontese country fare. They now sell their products all over the world, but their core values remain the same. Every time you open a La Favorita jar, you know you’re tasting locally grown Ligurian produce with no artificial preservatives or colourings.
