Walnut Pesto Pasta - Pesto Di Noci

Pesto Di Noci is a Pesto made with Walnuts and Ricotta and is also called as Walnut Pesto Pasta. The pesto is rich and creamy from ricotta and is a quick, easy and great dish. The recipe can be made in less than 20 minutes from start to finish. Make sure to reserve at least 1 cup of the pasta cooking water as this dish can dry in a few minutes, so add some cooking water to the sauce and save 1 cup. Also serve this IMMEDIATELY – Even a few minutes will be late for this one. I made this with Multigrain Pasta.. This is my choice for W - International / Fusion
