Genovese is one of the great sauces of Italy. The city of Genoa in Italy takes the credit of creating this sauce which uses the famous "pesto" (also originated in Genoa). This sauce is traditionally served with pasta.
The addition of mushrooms enhances the taste of this already flavourful sauce. Pesto can be easily made at home - by pounding basil, garlic, walnuts and olive oil or you can buy ready-made pesto, available at speciality gourmet stores.
