     Pasta with Walnut-Basil Pesto

Category   Entrees - Maindishes
Sub Category   None

1 1/4 cups packed fresh basil
1/4 cup walnuts
1 clove garlic, peeled
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp crushed red-pepper flakes
8oz multigrain angel hair pasta
1/4 cup chopped tomato (optional)
1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese

In a food processor, place the basil, walnuts, garlic, oil, salt, and pepper flakes. Process, stopping the machine once or twice to scrape down the sides, until finely pureed. Scrape into a serving bowl.
Meanwhile, bring a medium pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook according to package directions. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking water.
Stir 2-3 tbsp of the pasta water into pesto to warm it and make it creamier. Add the pasta and toss, adding more pasta water if dry. Sprinkle with tomato, if using and the cheese
