Pesto Italia is a sauce originating in Genoa in the Liguria region of northern Italy (pesto alla genovese), and traditionally consists of crushed garlic, basil, and European pine nuts blended with olive oil, Parmigiano-Reggiano (Parmesan cheese). But I made quick and easy version with combination of basil and coriander with blanched almonds instead of pine nuts. I made quick sandwich with this pesto sauce, tomato slices and slice of cheese. Love the nutty and basil flavor in this spread which can be store for more than one month in freeze.
