I was born and raised in New York City and my parents were Italian immigrants from the countryside.

But as a kid, I would never have imagined that my first taste of pesto would have anything to do with Italian food.

As an adult, I’ve discovered that pesto is my absolute favorite Italian food, and I’ve never had a pesto sauce that didn’t taste like Italian.

That’s why I’m thrilled to share the simple recipe I’ve learned to make my very own pesto and pizza sauce.
