– 100g pistachios

– 25g Pine Nuts

– 10g grated Parmigiano (Parmesan)

– 50ml Extra Virgin Olive Oil D.O.P. Dauno “Re Manfredi”

– Salt as required.


Grate Parmigiano and put it aside. Put pistachios, pine nuts, Parmigiano, salt and Extra Virgin Olive Oil D.O.P. Dauno Gargano Clemente “Re Manfredi” inside a mixer and blend well.

Where needed, add more oil to make the pesto sauce even creamier.

Be careful not to put too much oil though.

Remove the pistachio pesto sauce from the mixer and pour it into a bowl as it is now ready for consumption.

Pesto sauce can be enriched by adding some garlic and a generous handful of almonds instead of pine nuts.
