Tonnarelli with a Toasted Pine Nut Sauce (v.)

This dish is our very own take on Genova’s salsa di noci, a beautiful and elegant sauce typically made from walnuts. Here, however, we use toasted pine nuts in place of walnuts in a twist that feels just as elegant if lighter and suitable for spring.

In Italy, pine nuts - or pinoli - have been foraged for centuries by hand, with fallen pine cones collected from the forests. The greatest pinoli zealots, in search of the freshest nuts, are even known to climb high into the sky in order to pluck the pine cones from the branches of the tree.  

In our unique take on salsa di noci - perhaps more accurately termed salsa di pinoli, in this dish - we highlight the butterlike taste and texture of pine nuts by quietly featuring fresh oregano, garlic and a drop of milk in the background of this dish. The sauce is paired with hand-crafted, fresh tonnarelli from Lazio, the home region of Roma, the Italian capital. Tonnarelli are like a square spaghetti - indeed, they are often referred to as spaghetti quadrati, or, more commonly, spaghetti alla chittara. This is a pasta pairing made in heaven. Or Italy.

INGREDIENTS (allergens in bold): Fresh pasta (Wheat flour, Egg, Durum wheat flour, Salt),
Pine nuts, White bread (Wheat), Milk, Garlic, Sage, Black pepper

GARNISH INGREDIENTS: Pine nuts, Parmesan cheese
Keep refrigerated. Use within 3 days of delivery

FREEZING: The product can be frozen (ideally on day of delivery) and keeps for 2 months in the freezer. The pasta should be cooked directly from frozen. The salsa di noci needs to be defrosted, either overnight in the fridge, or by putting it (still sealed in the bag) in hot water for 4-5 minutes, until thawed & heated through.

This food has been prepared in a kitchen that also prepares molluscs, mustard, nuts, gluten, fish, crustaceans, and therefore may contain traces of these.
