DIRECTIONS

  • Put a large saucepan of water on to boil, and toast the walnuts in a dry frying pan until they begin to make a nutty aroma.
  • Put the bread in a bowl and cover with the milk.
  • Put most of the toasted walnuts (reserving about 1 ounce for garnish) into a blender along with the garlic, bread soaked in milk, and Parmesan.
  • Blend until it turns smooth and creamy, then pour in the oil and season well with salt and pepper before blending again.
  • Pour into a bowl, and set aside.
  • Add pasta to boiling water with salt and cook for the required amount of time.
  • When pasta is al dente, reserve a cup of the pasta cooking liquid and then drain the pasta, but put it in to a large bowl while it's still dripping slightly with water. Sprinkle a little olive oil over the pasta to prevent it sticking together, and then add the walnut sauce, mixing it into the pasta (splash in a little pasta cooking liquid to make the sauce less thick if needed).
  • Roughly chop the remaining walnuts and toss them over the top along with some more Parmesan and the chopped parsley.
