We first sampled pasta with walnut sauce during a trip through Italy, where walnuts are a prized ingredient. There are many versions walnut sauce (salsa di noci) – including very simple preparations where pulverized walnuts are added to milk and breadcrumbs and then tossed with pasta.
I prefer to use granule sized walnut chunks to add more texture to the dish. If you’re looking for a lower carb option, you can also use this sauce over roasted cauliflower or spaghetti squash. It’s also very good over a thick pasta noodle such as tagliatelle.
