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: Bronte pistachios.
Bronte pistachios, also known as ''green gold'' in their native Sicily, from where this sauce originates, are renowned throughout the gastronomic world for their rich, nutty flavour and deep green colour. 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.
