Suga and pest
Sugo , as the Italians call this tomato sauce, is an indispensable part of Italian cuisine. They form the basis for pizza, baked pasta such as canelloni, la parmigianu (baked eggplant with cucumber and parmesan cheese), and almost all classic pasta sauces are prepared.
Pesto or Pesto alla genovese is a green sauce whose main ingredient is basil. The origin of the pestilence lies in the region of Liguria in northern Italy, and the genovese belongs to the North Italian city of Genoa ( Genova ). The name is derived from the Italian word pestare = beat, thrash . Traditional preparation of the classic pest consists in crushing and friction of basal leaves in a marble mortar with a wooden stick.
