Toasting walnuts enhances their flavor. Other than that, this delicious pasta sauce requires no cooking, just a few seconds in the food processor.

As I made this in the dead of SoCal summer I toasted nuts in skillet. As I can not do dairy subbed soy creamer and nutritional yeast base grated chez! It was very good! As I like a bit of spice, Aleppo chilies were added! I will continue to make/share this recipe!raf

this was super fast and easy and tasted great - just what i was looking for. accidentally chopped all the walnuts, but no matter. served over whole wheat capellini, instead of spinach (had none). served with sautéed shrimp and salad of young greens. could replace some cream with milk if lowering fat/cals.
