While travelling around Southern Italy earlier this year, I reconnected with many things – the sun (we had a particularly average summer in Dunedin this year), reading books (made from paper! With wine in one hand, feet up – time to relax!), incredible architecture and design, and….pasta! Somehow – and I can’t help feeling a little uneasy about this fact – for almost a year, pasta was missing from my life. How…? … Well… I think I just went a through a phase of eating it too often, which was replaced by a phase of abstaining, and now I’m right back into eating it. All. The. Time. Pattern of behaviour emerging here?
This simple wee recipe is a perfect winter pasta dish – bursting with freshness from loads of mint and parsley, and with that delicious, deep nutty flavour from the toasted walnuts.
