Italian Ingredients We Love
Pesto to the rescue
Pesto, as we know it, is an aromatic blend of fresh basil, pine nuts, olive oil, Parmesan, and a squeeze of lemon. We like to call it a superpower food, since it has the ability to rescue pasta, sandwiches, and appetizers from being ordinary.
Our food experts have done it again. After a recent trip to Italy, they brought back dozens of authentic foods and ingredients to share. Say ciao to Hy-Vee's newest brand, Gustare Vita, meaning “enjoy life.”
Each product is crafted by growers, makers, and artisans using methods that honor long-standing traditions. Come see! And taste. Discover what's in store, and enjoy life around the table.
