Pesto Genovese is probably the most famous Italian sauce for pasta after Ragu alla Bolognese, typical of the Liguria region.
You will need a mortar and pestle to make this Pesto alla Genovese the traditional way, but you can use a food processor if you’re low on time. Just know that the consistency of the sauce will be much different if you use a machine instead of a mortar and pestle.
