Sicilian Pistachio Spread with Extra Virgin Olive Oil
From Il Colle del Gusto in Lazio, this divine spread blends famed Sicilian Pistacchios with Extra Virgin Olive Oil. The result is a luxurious taste and texture in a sweet and smooth spread. Extra virgin olive oil adds gloss and the velvety texture, but the flavor is fully nutty pistachio.
Pistachio lovers will want to eat it right out of the jar, but you can also use Pistacchiosa as you would chocolate sauce over ice cream, spooned over fresh ricotta cheese or frozen yogurt or stirred into rice pudding.
Mix it with pastry cream, whipped cream, or ricotta for delicious cream puff filling. Swirl atop white chocolate truffles for a simple, beautiful dessert presentation, or spoon it over cheesecake.
