Great idea for pasta which was very enjoyable. I would consider adding avocado to this as well as a green salad. Even the three year old ate this without complaint!

Wow, what a wonderful surprise! My other half and I have "swapped roles" this week so I'm on washing up and he's on dinner. He has free reign over the menu and picked this little winner to make last night. I have to say, I was dubious to begin with (not being accustomed to nuts with pasta) but this was really good. The flavours came together wonderfully and it was spot on. He stirred through 2tbsp pesto at the end which finished it off nicely. My only comments would be that a quoted amount of pesto would be helpful (I had to advise him of how much to use) and also the pistachios were a nightmare to shell, but that's hardly the recipe's fault! Delicious and we'll definitely be having it again! Thanks!

Great Recipe :) My husband cooked it for me and he didnt add the pesto sauce. I love it, and will try it next time with the sauce and a glass of wine ;)

Just wonderful. I used the basil pesto and there was clamoring for more than I made of this tasty pasta. What a great idea - pasta and pistacios.

Super idea! I also had a bunch of pistachios that I had no idea what to do with. Their quality was iffy, so I didn't want to put them in a cookie... I used dried onion flakes since I was out of onions and I fried the ingredients in olive oil. I also added Classico pesto sauce and some parmesan. SO yummy! I usually prefer a hearty beef/tomato sauce with my pasta and rarely make pesto, but I definitely will make this on a regular basis. Thanks!
