Walnut, Parmesan and Spinach Pasta Sauce

This pasta sauce is so easy to make, but it is so delicious. This is a pasta dish which will make you love every bite and wish you could go on eating for days 🙂

We had this with tricolore pasta, which is pasta that looks like the Italian flag: green, white, and red! The green pasta was spinach pasta, the white pasta was regular pasta, and the red pasta was beetroot pasta.

  • 100 g walnuts
  • 90 g fresh spinach leaves
  • 40 g parmesan
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 3 tbs olive oil
