This might look as green and verdant as Pesto Alla Genovese, but it’s something else entirely: pistachio pesto! Made with fragrant pistachios straight from Sicily, this pasta is sweet, nutty, and absolutely mouthwatering. The addition of capers brings a delightful briny, tangy kick, while a splash of lemon juice brightens everything up. This dish is perfect whether you serve it hot, warm, or even cold as a pasta salad. It's versatile, quick to make, and guaranteed to impress.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Season generously with salt. Add the pasta and cook until al dente, about 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl mix together the pistachio pesto, chopped capers, lemon zest, lemon juice and 1 cup of the cheese. Sprinkle the kale on top of the sauce. Using a pasta spider, remove the pasta from the water directly to the bowl along with 1/2 cup of pasta water and immediately start tossing the pasta. Continue to toss adding another 1/2 cup of cheese and up to another 1/2 cup of pasta water, until the sauce is light and creamy and clings to the pasta. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup cheese and serve drizzled with olive oil if desired.
