Italian Pistachio Gelato
You can easily make real Italian gelato at home, which is just a great dessert especially in summer. Pistachios are my favorite nuts because they have such an intense flavor. If you can, use Sicilian Bronte pistachios, but pistachio paste also works great if you can get your hands on some. Don't worry if you do not have an ice cream maker - I've included a few tips for making gelato without one. Top with chopped pistachios and grated chocolate.
