A while back I found a recipe for lemon walnut pasta on Pinterest (where else?) and promptly added it to my cooking board. It has since been one of my most re-pinned pins. And why wouldn’t it be, simple, great flavours and fresh. Then I came across the parmesan and herb walnuts at the Daylesford Farmers’ Market and I thought they would go perfectly in this dish. They did!
This isn’t exactly the most kid-friendly meal but by picking the nuts (or at least the bigger ones) out of the girls bowls they were happy to eat the lemony-cheesy pasta with a little extra olive oil and lots of parsley. On the plus side this was all done in the time it took to cook the pasta.
I love these simple two or three key ingredient pasta dishes and have pinned LOTS of them. So I’m sure I’ll be sharing more with you soon, especially as the weather warms up.
As an aside if you are looking for a super-dooper kid-friendly meal, try Ren’s lamb skewers with lemon and cumin. A new family favourite here too and I can’t wait to try out her variations.
