The name of this beautiful, beach-evoking pasta shape is derived from the Italian word for seashell, “conchiglia”. The Italian word “conchiglie”, just like the English word “conch”, shares the same Greek root in the form of κοχύλι (kochýli), which means “shell”.
And whilst you may not find grains of sand from the shores of Sicily within our artisan conchiglie, you will find that they are the perfect shape for this beautiful plant-based pesto, allowing flecks of deep green Bronte pistachio to nestle within.
Bronte pistachios are also known as ‘’green gold’’ in their native Sicily, from where this sauce originates. The delicate nut is renowned throughout the gastronomic world for its rich, nutty flavour and green hue. Indeed, we hope you’ll agree this innovative pesto - inspired by Sicily, but given a modern plant-based twist by leaving out the traditional formaggio - has the most beautiful colour.
