Pasta with Walnut and Ricotta Cheese Sauce

Ingredients

1 lb fettucini or other pasta noodles
1.5 Cup walnuts, divided
1/4 cup fresh grated parmesan
3 tb minced parsley
3 garlic cloves
1 tsp salt plus more to taste
1/4 tsp ground black pepper plus more to taste
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 cup olive oil

Bring a large pot of salted water to boil, then cook the pasta to al dente. While the pasta is cooking, pulse 1 cup walnuts, parmesan, parsley, garlic and black pepper in a food processor until walnuts have been chopped very fine. Transfer mixture to a bowl and stir in the ricotta and olive oil. Mix by hand until smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste.* IN a small saucepan over low heat, toast remaining half cup of walnuts. Drain finished pasta and mix with the sauce until all the noodles are covered. Serve immediately with toasted walnuts on top.

*Make sure to check the sauce to see if it needs additional salt. The level of saltiness will depend on the type of parmesan you use, and may need to be adjusted before adding the pasta.
