PISTACHIO & ALMOND PESTO PASTA

We Combined the Most Popular Sicilian Products & This is The Result

INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT PISTACHIO AND ALMOND PESTO 

This peculiar Pesto is made with two of the best Sicilian products: Pizzuta di Avola Almond and Bronte Pistachio. Pizzuta refers to the physical almond shape, which is pointy and very flat. It is exceptionally fruity with just a hint of bitterness. Bronte Pistachio derives its intense gentle sweet flavor and grassy aroma from the mineral rich volcanic soil of Etna Volcano. Its production is limited. It is harvested manually every two years from the end of August for one month.
