pasta with walnuts, sage & garlic
This is another one of my quick & easy meals that I make when I can't decide what I want.
While the pasta is boiling, throw into a pan (on medium heat): a couple TBSP of butter, a splash of olive oil, a handful of roughly-chopped walnuts, and a sliced garlic clove or two. Cook until the garlic gets just a hint of light brown, and the butter has browned slightly. Throw in some chopped fresh sage leaves (sometimes I use rosemary instead) and season with salt. Strain the pasta, dump it in, and toss to combine everything. Top with a little grated parmesan.
