Orecchiette with Festive Supergreen Pesto, Toasted Pine Nuts & Parmesan (gf. avail.)

Orecchiette, literally ‘little ears’ in Italian, are a perfect example of how amazing pasta can be! Using only flour and water, the little shell shapes have a firm bite, but a soft interior. When next in London, do pop by our Pasta Evangelists concession in the Harrods food hall. Make sure you stop and ask our sfoglina’s (pasta makers) Livia or Michelangelo how to make orecchiette!

Another delight is, of course, the variety of shapes available across Italy’s twenty regions. Orecchiette are known and loved in their rugged home region of Puglia for their ability to scoop up smaller elements of the sauce, such as this innovative fresh pesto, packed with basil, spinach, kale & many more nutrient rich greens. The sturdy pasta holds this sauce beautifully, so neither pasta nor our twist on pesto becomes a supporting act for the other. We top with a traditional Italian cheese, Parmesan, whose crumbly, nutty taste imparts added depth to the dish.
