  1. Place the walnuts and garlic in a food processor and blitz until well chopped but still retaining some nutty texture. Add the grated cheese and parsley, pulse again.
  2. Begin adding the oil while the food processor is running slowly, drizzle it in until you have a fairly runny paste. Now add the lemon juice.
  3. Taste, season with salt and pepper as needed. Use or store in a sealed container in the fridge until ready.


Great served with linguine and some warm crusty bread.
