Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Serving Suggestion
Balance this rich and indulgent entree with smart side dishes. For example, enjoy a serving of this pasta with steamed broccoli and baked apples for dessert.
Tip 2
How to Toast Nuts
Toasting nuts adds crunch and intensifies their flavor. To toast nuts in the oven, spread nuts in single layer in shallow baking pan. Bake at 350°F for 8 to 10 min. or until golden brown, stirring occasionally. To toast nuts on the stovetop, place nuts in ungreased skillet. Cook on medium heat until golden brown, stirring frequently. To toast nuts in the microwave, place up to 1 cup of nuts in a microwaveable shallow dish. Microwave on HIGH until fragrant and crisp, stirring every 30 sec.
Tip 3
Use Your Blender
Instead of the food processor, use an electric blender to mix the sauce ingredients. (Or, use a sharp knife to mince the garlic and finely chop the walnuts. Then, mix with the remaining sauce ingredients as directed.) Toss with the cooked drained pasta as directed.
