From Trader Giotto
The Italian region of Liguria is known for many things. The coastal town of Portofino is famous as both a quaint fishing village and a celebrity-studded resort town. Its port city of Genoa was the home of Christopher Columbus. And then, of course, there's pesto, purportedly first made in Genoa with a mortar and pestle — this simple tool gave the sauce its name.
From one of our longtime Italian suppliers comes Trader Giotto's Linguine with Pesto & Tomatoes, a delightfully authentic take on a Genovese tradition. It starts with fresh egg linguine — long, thin, flat noodles, about 1/8 of an inch thick. To that we add a vibrant-green basil pesto, and we complete the colorful creation with brightly-hued, sweet-tasting cherry tomatoes. Our supplier makes this exclusively for us and freezes it immediately, ensuring the liveliest of flavors. This is a fresh-tasting entrée that will serve 2-3 pasta lovers — and you can have it on the table in about five minutes!
We're selling Linguine with Pesto & Tomatoes in a 16 ounce package for $2.99. You'll find it in our freezers.
