Have you ever tried Bufala Mozzarella with Pistachio Pesto Oro? If you have never done it-do it! Buffalo mozzarella is an ideal cheese that does not cover up the flavors and Pesto di Pistacchio Oro is in olive oil, also great on mozzarella! Our friend and food blogger Chiara Caprettini of NorthFoodOvestEast did not stop there. He used this very good combination to stuff the conchiglioni, which he then laid on a pumpkin cream, which gives that extra touch. Here are Conchiglioni stuffed with Buffalo Mozzarella and Pistachio Pesto on pumpkin cream.

This dish is meant to remind some of our land between sea and volcano. The shells evoke the sound of waves crashing on the rocks, over there in Catania. Pumpkin, a rustic and simple vegetable, evokes distant times, and mozzarella is part of our fresh and simple cuisine. Finally he, the pistachio, the protagonist that is never lacking here in Bronte and is capable of making every dish special! Tasting Conchiglioni stuffed with Buffalo Mozzarella and Pistachio Pesto on pumpkin cream, close your eyes, you will feel our Island a little closer!
