Cavati is a type of pasta that goes very well with pestos. An excellent cuisine tip is that cavati with pistachio and almond pesto gives rise to a fabulous first course. What is more, it is easily prepared in just a few minutes and it´s very creamy and super tasty!

A very tasty variant of Grandma Maria’s Cavati col “Buso” is to use pistachio and almond pesto instead of just pistachio pesto.
