Pasta with 2 cheeses, walnuts & pancetta


  • Cook the pasta in lightly salted, boiling water until al dente. Drain and return to the pot.
  • Heat a little oil in a pan and gently sauté the pancetta, red onion and garlic until slightly crisp. 
  • Add the walnuts and cook to toast, regularly stirring. 
  • Then turn off the heat and add the parsley with the cheese. Gently toss and briefly cook until the cheese has melted, mashing as you do so. Taste for seasoning.
