Rich with pistachio nuts from Bronte in Sicily, this sauce or pesto is a delight on pasta. This is a clean slate and you can add cheese or sweet notes to your desire. A squeeze of lemon juice also enlivens this base. Basil and mint are the ideal herbs for this in Sicilian cuisine.
The recommended pasta shapes are typically long strands, such as spaghetti or tagliatelle. Top with the best Parmigiano-Reggiano DOP, or Sicilian hard cheese.
