Walnut Pasta with Pecorino Sardo

Ingredients

1 box of linguine pasta

¼ cup pine nuts

½ cup walnuts

2 Tablespoons breadcrumbs

2 Tablespoons olive oil

Salt

2 ½ cups milk or cream

2 ounces Pecorino Sardo grated/shredded

Walnuts for garnish

Directions

Cook the pasta al dente in salted water.

Toast pine nuts in a dry skillet.

Mix pine nuts, walnuts, breadcrumbs, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper in a food processor.

Bring the milk / cream to a boil, pour in the nut mix and stir it together.

Mix the walnut sauce with the freshly boiled paste.

Serve garnished with grated pecorino cheese and crushed walnuts.

Tips: using cream gives a smoother result, and because of the fat, the cream brings out the taste so the dish becomes full of flavor (you can use cream with 5% fat and it will still be super good).
