Featured Ingredients

Ground Turkey


Ground turkey is a leaner, healthier alternative to ground beef. It is lower in saturated fat and calories, but higher in protein.

Ground turkey can be used in any recipe that calls for ground beef, such as tacos, chili, or spaghetti sauce.

Pesto Sauce


Pesto is a sauce made from fresh basil, olive oil, garlic, Parmesan cheese, and pine nuts. It originates from the Genovese region of Italy and is typically used as a condiment for pasta dishes.

While pesto is most commonly associated with Italian cuisine, it has become popular in other parts of the world as well.

In addition to being used as a pasta sauce, pesto can also be used as a spread for sandwiches or a flavourful addition to soups or salads.

If you’re looking for a new way to add some zest to your cooking, give pesto sauce a try.
