White Pesto with Oregano Spaghetti

When my kids were little there was nothing they liked more than a big bowl of cheesy pasta with just a dash of cream and a mere sniff of garlic for flavour. This dish is a salute to those days but a bit more of a grown up version. You could serve this to any adult and they would be pretty darned happy I think. Add more cheese to taste, it is easy to plus it up to feed more or minus it down to feed less. Enjoy kids...and big kids too!

Do

1  

Toast walnuts by placing into a cold oven set to 200°C. Cook for exactly 10 minutes. Remove and cool.

2  

Bring a pot of water to the boil and salt it generously. Remember you are not eating this salt, it is just flavouring the pasta. Cook the pasta according to package directions.

3  

Place salt, lemon zest, garlic, parmesan and dried oregano into the Thermomix bowl and mill 5 sec/speed 6.

4  

Add walnuts, EVOO and lemon juice and combine 3 sec/speed 4.

5  

Add black pepper oil or pepper and combine 5 sec/Reverse/speed 4. Stir through the ricotta with spatula. Taste and adjust seasoning.

6  

Toss through the drained spaghetti and serve garnished with loads of freshly grated parmesan, lemon zest and the fresh oregano leaves. A good drizzle of the beautiful Cobram First Harvest EVOO will also be fantastic.
