So, what is basilico?

Basilico, also known as basil, is a fragrant herb widely used in Italian cuisine. With its delicate yet distinctive aroma, it adds a unique flavor to many dishes. The herb features tender leaves that are a rich green color and have a slightly sweet and spicy flavor. Basilico is a rich source of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that have been found to have many health benefits, including anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. Whether used fresh, dried, or in oil form, basilico is a versatile and essential ingredient in many classic Italian dishes such as Caprese salad, pesto sauce, and Margherita pizza.
