    HouseDragon's Note:

    This is from my favorite Italian cookbook: The Classic Pasta Cookbook by Giuliano Hazan. Walnut pesto, like basil pesto, is a speciality of Liguria on the Italian Riviera. It is good with fettuccine (known as trenette in Liguria) or spaghetti; it is traditionally served with pansoti, a triangular pasta parcel filled with five different local wild greens. Someday I will try to make the pansoti using wild dandelion leaves along with homegrown bitter greens. Feeds 6 with a second course. Cooking time includes bringing water to a boil.
