Gourmet recipes with pistachio pesto
Given its refinement, it is not easy to find this type of condiment, but when it is available, it adds a touch of class to even the simplest dishes. Here are some dishes that go well with pesto:
Pasta with tuna and pistachio pesto
The secret lies in the quality of the ingredients: in addition to the pistachio pesto, we recommend Mediterranean red tuna and a grating of lemon rind before serving.
Penne with pistachio pesto
Compared to the classic recipe, this one replaces the bacon with cooked ham, making the flavour more aromatic and intense, and reducing the amount of cream in favour of the pesto. As special as it is tasty, it is easy and quick to prepare.
