Orecchiette with Pistachio Pesto, Pistachio Crumb & 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.

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 with its star ingredient: Sicilian pistachios. 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.
