Pesto, as you know, is a famous Italian sauce that combines nuts, garlic and basil. This particular recipe adds a new dimension to pesto by introducing coriander, onions and green chillies into it! These ingredients give the pesto a very peppy flavour and unbeatable aroma, while a dose of butter and fresh cream give it an awesomely creamy texture.

This all-new Pesto and Coriander Sauce matches perfectly with fettuccine pasta. Together with Garlic Bread , the Veg Fettuccine Pasta in Pesto and Coriander Sauce makes a tasty and wholesome meal.
