  • 300 g paccheri • 100 g walnut kernels• 100 g sweet bacon • 40 g parmigiano reggiano • 1 clove of garlic • 100 g cooking cream • 20 g extra virgin olive oil


Bring the cooking water for the paccheri to a boil. Mix the walnuts with the parmigiano, cream, a pinch of garlic and blend well.

You can replace the cream with ricotta or mascarpone in the same amounts.

Sauté the peeled garlic with the extra virgin olive oil and bacon.

Pour the walnut sauce into a container and set aside. Place a ladle of cooking water aside.

Drain the pasta, toss it in the bacon, then add the sauce with the walnuts, and let it cook for a few minutes.

If needed, add the water from the pasta to make it creamier.

Leave the paccheri and walnuts to simmer for a few minutes on a moderate flame.

Serve and… enjoy your meal!
