Casarecce Pasta with Swordfish and Pistachio Pesto

A delicious dish of Sicilian cuisine, which tastes of land and sea. Quick to prepare, it is tasty eaten hot but also lends itself to being served cold. Mint enhances the flavor of swordfish and adds a note of freshness that immediately makes summer. The casarecce, with their slightly rough surface and their particular shape, seem to tighten the sauce in an embrace.
