Sicilian Pistachio Spread with Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Pistachios get the luxury treatment in this unbelievably smooth, sweet spread from Il Colle del Gusto. Extra virgin olive oil lends glossy sheen and velvety texture, but the flavor is all pistachio. The high percentage of Sicilian pistachio paste in this dreamy jarful makes for an intensely nutty flavor and aroma that you’ll smell the second you pop open the lid.
Pistachio lovers will want to eat it right out of the jar, but you can also use Pistacchiosa as you would chocolate sauce, spooned over fresh ricotta cheese or frozen yogurt or stirred into rice pudding.
- Mix it with pastry cream or whipped cream for delicious cream puff filling
- Drizzle artfully atop white chocolate truffles for a simple, beautiful dessert presentation
- Spoon it over cheesecake

- In 2012, Antonio della Corte was creating sweet mixes for gelaterie and pastry shops and Anna Maria Conti was running a farm, bed and breakfast a few miles north of Rome. In a blend as natural as chocolate and hazelnut, the two combined their talents to produce a line of spreads made with Anna Maria’s own extra virgin olive oil and nuts grown on friends’ farms.
