    • Total time: 25 minutes

    Serves: 4

    Ingredients

    100g walnut pieces
    25g unsalted butter
    2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
    2 tbsp pink peppercorns, crushed
    25g pack flat leaf parsley, stalks finely chopped, leaves torn
    300g elicoidali or penne
    100g chèvreblanc, crumbled

    Method

    1. Preheat the oven 180˚C, gas mark 4. Spread the nuts over a baking tray; roast for 8-10 minutes, until golden, then set aside.

    2. Heat the butter and 1 tbsp oil in a large frying pan, add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes, until pale golden. Stir in the peppercorns and walnuts, season well and stir through the parsley; set aside.

    3. Meanwhile, cook the pasta for 1 minute less than pack instructions. Drain, reserving some of the cooking liquid. Stir the pasta through the walnut mixture with a good slosh of the cooking liquid; season, stir in the cheese and serve.
