Pesto sauce is capable of many things–even the smallest dab of this flavorful sauce can completely transform a dish. Garlic, basil, and olive oil, what’s not to love?

Our Roma® line of pesto sauces has a plethora of flavors to keep your dishes fresh and your flavors bold. Aside from the traditional pesto sauces we all know and love, the Roma brand also has unique flavor combinations–a Sun Dried Tomato and Garlic pesto, a Southwest Chipotle pesto, and a Cilantro Pesto.

Try experimenting with pesto in your pasta dishes, on top of burgers, combined with mayo for a sandwich spread, drizzled on top of a beautiful caprese salad, or spread on an appetizer plate for eye appeal and a little extra flavor. Roma pesto sauces can be mixed with mayonnaise, sour cream, barbeque sauce, mustard, ranch, or other dressings to create a delicious signature appetizer dip or sandwich spread. Try some of these ideas to add pesto to your sandwich and burger menu.
