Pesto was first brought to Peru by Italian immigrants from Liguria, which is known to be the cradle of this popular sauce, and boasts of having the most aromatic basil in the world. Their simple yet exquisite gastronomy had a permanent influence on Peruvian cuisine, and the original pesto ligure became the popular tallarines verdes (green noodles).
