(WSVN) - Pesto anyone? Today we have a new twist on an old favorite that is sure to be a hit. That’s what’s cooking as we grab a Bite with Belkys.

1 cup walnuts, roasted and cooled
1 1/2 cups frozen peas, blanched
3 tsp. dried Italian herbs
3/4 cup finely grated Parmesan
2 garlic cloves, crushed
juice of half a lemon
1 cup extra virgin olive oil
Pasta of your choice

Method of Preparation:

  • Place walnuts, peas, herbs, garlic, lemon juice and olive oil in a blender and make a coarse paste.
  • Season to taste and place in a large bowl.
  • Cook pasta of your choice as per package directions (we used casarecce).
  • Drain but reserve 2/3 cup cooking water.
  • Add pasta to the pesto in the bowl, add some of the water and stir.
  • Add water as needed a little at a time to make the paste more of a sauce, and stir to coat the pasta.
  • Top with extra Parmesan or walnuts, and serve.
