Pestos With Panache by Lauren | SAVORIQUE
Pumpkin Chipotle Pesto is a wonderful compilation of flavors. The consistency is hearty, and the undertones of Chipoltes in Adobo, combined with fresh basil, and natural pumpkin, is to die for! You will feel a bit of smokey heat on your tongue with a hint of nutmeg in the background. Creamy, Hearty, Wonderful and Warm... This is a Get Cozy pesto; serve tossed with wheat pasta and dollop of Part Skim Ricotta. Simply Divine!
Founder Lauren Stewart have gotten quite a few strange looks initially with the introduction of this flavor; Succulent Strawberry Pesto; her testers (prior to tasting) would say, "Oh, I am not a 'sweet' person." she would say, "Great... Succulent Strawberry Pesto is not Sweet." All of the tasters that tried it agreed, that they could have never pictured strawberries and basil coming together, in the way that it does in this product. Pungent basil, undertone of strawberry, hint of nutmeg... a rich beautiful consistency. I love this one tossed with thin strips of chicken breast and tossed together with wheat pasta. This is a Get Happy pesto; it is how you feel every time you take a taste!
Have you ever had a warm piece of Blueberry Pie with a thin slice of asiago cheese? Need I say more...ok, so no crust here folks; the tartness of the Blueberries really comes through, accented by the nutmeg, basil, and asiago cheese. I love this flavor tossed with wheat penne pasta and thin chicken strips, garnished with shredded asiago cheese or the Blueberry Pesto itself, baked into corn muffin mix, and you got it, garnished with a bit more asiago cheese!!! This is the Get Nostalgic Pesto; every time you take that first bite, it brings you back to the Fall, having hot pie with a big 'ol hunk of cheese; no thin slices back then!!!
