Fresh baby artichokes, basil, 100% virgin olive oil, toasted walnuts and real Parmesan cheese rounded off with a splash of Chardonnay Wine. Gil's Gourmet is committed to using the best products possible and showcasing the local produce of California's central coast. This pesto owes its amazing flavor to baby artichokes from neighboring Castroville, CA, home of the Artichoke Festival for forty years running! This pesto is great for adding a bright flavorful pop to grilled zucchini, leeks, and eggplant. Another summer favorite is to toss this pesto with grilled shrimp and pappardelle.
