Walnut Sauce – salsa di noci

February 6, 2010 by Anna / Tags: , , , , / 2 Comments

If you are bored of eating a tomatoe pasta sauce and would like to create something different, I suggest you to try this recipe: Pasta with Walnut Sauce


Ingredients for 4 people:

200 grams walnuts, 1/2 glove of garlic, the soft part of two bread rolls, whole milk, 3 tablespoons of olive oil, salt.


Shell walnuts; soak in water in order to remove the bitter inside skin.

Place nuts in the mortar or in a food processor with the garlic, bread soaked in milk and salt. Blend with pestle until smooth and creamy.

When serving with pasta (in Liguria we use pansoti or ravioli or gnocchi), I suggest you to dilute with a little bit of the hot water used to cook the pasta and toss with butter and Parmesan cheese.

…and Enjoy it!
