I saw this on Ciao Italia. This recipe is featured on show 2110 – Classic Pasta of Liguria. Try with raviolis,
- 1⁄2 lb walnuts
- 1⁄3 cup pine nuts
- 1 garlic clove, peeled
- 1⁄2 cup ricotta cheese
- 1⁄2 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 2 1⁄2 tablespoons finely chopped marjoram or 2 1⁄2 tablespoons parsley
- Place the walnuts, pine nuts, salt and garlic in a food processor and pulse to a paste. Add the cheese; pulse once or twice. Gradually add the olive oil until a smooth sauce is obtained. Transfer to a saucepan and stir in the marjoram or parsley. Keep the sauce warm while the pasta is cooking.
- Serve hot and pass grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese to sprinkle on top.
