Tips for the perfect Basil pesto pasta:

Fun fact: The Wingreens Farms Basil Pesto was the first ever dip to be introduced in the market- when our founding team took the dip into stores, delighting the customers with a live cooking demonstration. Today many of us think nothing of viewing live cooking demonstrations in food stores, but back then, we pioneered a concept that had never been done before. What worked was that all the ingredients were lying there—the fresh basil, the nuts, even the farmers who grew the Basil on the farm were present to handcraft the dip. We sold out and how! Thus began our farm to table journey, and now, a decade later- we’re still bringing customers deliciousness straight from the farm.
