Today we’ve got a green package. I’ve kind of tried to review them in the order of the spectrum (red, orange, yellow, green, indigo, violet) and while there’s no blue I think it’s going pretty well in that respect. Hey! Here’s a little info from Wikipedia about pesto –
Pesto (Italian: [ˈpesto]; Ligurian: [ˈpestu]) or, in extenso, pesto alla genovese (Italian pronunciation: [ˈpesto alla dʒenoˈveːze; -eːse]), is a sauce originating in Genoa, the capital city of Liguria, Italy. It traditionally consists of crushed garlic, European pine nuts, coarse salt, basil leaves, Parmigiano-Reggiano (Parmesan cheese) and pecorino sardo (cheese made from sheep’s milk), all blended with olive oil.
For me, the scent of basil is what comes to mind when I think of pesto. Let’s see what this one has to offer!
Mr. Noodle Pesto Sesame – Taiwan
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, boil noodles in 1000ml water for 5~6 minutes. Drain, saving 30~40ml liquid. Add noodles, liquid, and sachet contents to a bowl. Finally, stir and enjoy!
As with the spicy sesame variety, these are the thicker noodles.
A paste sachet.
An oil sachet.
Has a strong basil scent.
A final liquid sachet.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added coriander. The noodles were very thick and chewy. The sesame paste and what seemed to be a basil oil didn’t seem to jibe right to me. There was a kind of bitterness to it. 2.0 out of 5.0- stars. EAN bar code 4713106500034.
