Spaghetti with Lemon and Toasted Walnuts

Spaghetti with Lemon and Toasted Walnuts

Serves 8

30 minutes or fewer

This simple Italian combination is tasty on its own, or it can be filled out with roasted or steamed vegetables.
  • 1 cup walnut halves
  • ½ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 2 tsp. grated organic lemon zest
  • 1 clove garlic, minced (1 tsp.)
  • ¾ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 lb. spaghetti
  • 1 cup Italian parsley, coarsely chopped

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Toast walnuts on baking sheet 
10 minutes. Cool, and coarsely chop.

2. Whisk together cheese, oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, garlic, and pepper in large bowl.

3. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain, and reserve 1/2 cup pasta cooking water. Add drained pasta to cheese mixture, and toss to combine, adding some pasta water if mixture seems too thick. Stir in parsley and walnuts, and season with salt and more pepper, if desired.

Sounds delicious, but 1 lb. of spaghetti does not serve 8, unless they are eating antipasti and a second course!

Parmesan is not vegetarian!!! It contains tennett which Is derived from a cow's stomach.... shame on vegetarian times for not sharing this information & for sharing a non vegetarian recipe again!

Elise you can buy parm without the retin I do it all the time from Sams Club. Most all cheese has it in there unless you look for it. And most cheeses that do not have it are imported.
