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 sauce. And this is certainly the case for our beautiful plant-based pesto, the orecchiette 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.
