This was very easy to prepare and I enjoyed it very much. I chopped the nuts quite finely, but given the richness of the sauce, I would have done better to grind them more finely, which I would do another time. I served this with cheese tortellini, a delicious supper and very filling, a little goes a long way! Thank you awalde! made for PRMR tag game
This was quick to put together and had a nice creaminess to it. I didn't use the processor, just a nut chopper and ground the walnut really small; nice time I may use the processor as it was a little too crunchy for me. Served with mushroom and thyme ravioli it was a great combo. Made for AUS/NZ Recipe Swap #49.
This really exceeded my expectations. While I wouldn't have this sauce every time I have pasta I have to say that it's a wonderful change of pace and it would be a great way to treat your dinner guests to something a bit different. This sauce is savory but has an elusive hint of sweetness. I didn't use the processor and the nut crunch added a lot to the enjoyment.
