Tips  

Pesto, which originated in Italy, is a fine blend of basil, grated Parmesan cheese, pine nuts, garlic and olive oil. This sauce was once available only in restaurants or made from scratch, but now it's available in the refrigerated section of your grocery store.

Pita bread, once found only in Middle Eastern market and specialty bakeries, is now commonly found in the bread section of your grocery store.
