5 Pistachio Desserts That You Need to Make Immediately

So it’s Pistachio Day and that’s weird for a number of reasons, the first of which is that the complex little nut always makes us think of Stephen Colbert and Miss Piggy. Separately, of course. Although, now that we think of it, a Colbert x Miss Piggy commercial mashup would be amazing. Wonderful Pistachios should get on that ASAP.

But it’s also slightly weird that pistachios have earned themselves a moment of celebration. ‘Course, if lima beans get their own slot on the calendar (tell us you’ve heard of Lima Bean Respect Day!), then the vitamin-rich, heart-healthy pistachio should too, right?

To observe this tasty occasion , we’ve collected some of the most decadent dessert recipes out there (and one pasta dish for good measure). Ahead, six mega-green — and mega-delish — items you’re probably going to want to try right now.
