Ingredients

  • 180g dried linguine
  • 40g white bread, crusts removed (rustic bread that’s slightly stale is best)
  • 75ml milk (any kind)
  • 60g walnuts
  • 20g Parmesan or vegetarian alternative, finely grated, plus extra for serving
  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small garlic clove, peeled
  • 1-2 tbsp finely chopped flat-leaf parsley

Step by step

Get ahead
Make the sauce the day before and store in the fridge, covered.
  1. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and cook the pasta according to packet instructions.
  2. Tear the bread into small pieces and soak in the milk for 5 minutes. Tip the bread and milk into a food processor along with the walnuts, Parmesan, olive oil and garlic. Pulse until you have a coarse but creamy paste. Season well.
  3. Drain the pasta, reserving a small cup of the water, and return to the saucepan. Add the sauce and some reserved pasta water and toss everything together until well coated. Serve with extra Parmesan, parsley and a grinding of black pepper.
