This Walnut Sauce is a simple Italian recipe combining clean ingredients to create the perfect sauce. The blended combination of the ricotta with the garlic, parmesan cheese and parsley makes a sublime creamy textured sauce. This sauce is ideal for covering piping hot pasta for a superb main dish suitable for any table. However, this recipe is very tasty so it will become more and more requested. I have used walnuts in this recipe but if you prefer, pine nuts create the same texture. This sauce also works well Gnocchi and admittedly I think with pan fried pork chops and rice!!!!
- Combine all the ingredients in an electric blender/processor.
- Blend until fairly smooth - small pieces of nuts add a nice texture.
- Toss with the cooked pasta or gnocchi, adding a little bit of the cooking water to thin the sauce if necessary.
- Serve immediately.
