A couple of weeks ago, I went to Sicily for the wedding of two friends and, as a pistachio lover, I had my dose of pistachio-based food 😋 and I couldn’t resist to stop by a small supermarket and get some fresh, grained pistachio, and some pistachio pesto. So the other night, while still holiday-ing in Italy but back North at my fam’s, I decided to make a nice pasta dish with the pistachio pesto 💚 Add some tomatoes 🍅 and cheese 🧀, and you have a perfect summer treat. Super simple and super yummy 🤤

You need:
160 gr penne
200 gr cocktail tomatoes (diced)
3/4 tbs of pistachio pesto
olive oil
Grana Padano cheese or Parmesan to taste


In a big pot, heat the water for the pasta. Cook the penne as per package instructions.
In the meantime, in a pan cook the tomatoes with some olive oil until soft. When ready, pour the pasta in the pan with pesto, and some extra olive oil if needed. Stir well for a couple of minutes. Serve with some grated Grana Padano cheese or Parmesan.

Buon appetito!
