Pistachio in a Pesto was one of my better ideas. I love to cook things just a little bit outside the norm, and the great flavors of this pistachio pesto really fit the bill.
I've been wanting to make a Pesto for a long time now, but didn't have an idea of what to use it with. I've also been intriqued by the use of Pistachios. Here is a great way to utilize both, and have my need for cooking fulfilled. This is a great alternative to the standard pesto that most people are buying in stores, and it's Sooo quick and easy to make.
I used this Pistachio Pesto as a stuffing in a Pistachio Crusted Pork Tenderloin. The whole combination was perfect. The garlic flavor of the pesto, and the crunch of the Pistachio Nuts on top made a perfect meal.
