At Eataly, our chefs tell us that pasta should “marry” the sauce, and “what goes together grows together.” We have discovered that pesto’s match in pasta heaven is trofie, which perfectly picks up the basil sauce.

A true expression of the local Ligurian tradition, pesto gets its name from the Italian verb pestare, or to grind. From the recipe of famous Portofino restaurateurs Emilia and Simona Mussini, this Ligurian Pesto with Garlic from Niasca is made by the sweet combination of Ligurian Basil, high-quality extra virgin olive oil, Grana Padano DOP cheese, Pecorino Romano DOP, salt, and pine nuts. The pesto has an intense basil aroma that carries you right to Liguria.

The Trofie pasta from Alta Valle Scrivia is one of the most traditional and iconic pasta shapes in Liguria. This twisted spiral shape perfectly picks up Genovese pesto.
