The headnote suggests Sicilian pistachio paste for quality and green color.
And/or adding good color.
Very good pistachio paste can be very expensive...so consider a brand that balances color, quality and cost.
I would stay away from the ones that look and sound like a peanut butter spread.

PS
Another thought. Or make the pistachio paste at home.
Many recipes out there; here's one from Serious Eats.
