Reviews For Premium Pesto Genovese

Based on 10 Reviews


Very flavorful! A little mixed with Banza Rotini...fabulous! I will purchase this again, and again, and again!

- Terri


Delish and well bodied pesto. ...almost like homemade. I never thought of using cashews along with pinenuts. ..but it is splendid. I have used it on cuke slices and sometimes I even add it to a chopped salad. Healthier than salad dressing. I'm a buyer for life especially at these prices.

- Mary M. Butsch-Anderson

Great Anytime Sauce

I love this sauce on my Zoodles with shrimp. It adds such a great flavor, I don't notice I am eating zucchini noodles and not real pasta. I have also put it with steak and sugar snap peas and it is to die for. I am vert happy with the price point and the quality.

Premium Pesto Genovese

This pesto is very bland - it has no taste. It almost tastes tinny like it was in a can. I would not buy this again.

Genovese pesto

Excellent! Frankly, the best pesto I have ever eaten!

- Steven


Love this pesto. I freeze little cubes of it so I can use it as needed, although it would certainly be easy enough to eat it within the 2 weeks from opening.

- Rebecca

Amazing taste and value!

I CANNOT believe how inexpensive this jar of the most delicious pesto is! Well worth the purchase - small amounts of pesto go a long way, on pasta, egg plant, even a cheese plate!

- Jessica

Authentic taste

I thought I'd give this stuff a try instead of always making my own Genovese (takes so much time), and I'm glad I did! It's not quite as good as my own, but it really does have that authentic Italian taste to it. It's not too overpowering, but it brings a very noticeable taste to any Italian dish that I add it to. I especially love the gentle olive oil taste.

- Karolyn Rivera


I'm glad I was able to find these. The co-op stopped selling these because they weren't selling enough of them, but this sauce has always been my favorite. I'm glad Thrive sells it because now I can keep up with my favorite dishes. Plus, the price is even better than what my co-op was doing!
