  • 1
    2 tablespoons Kosher salt
    Bring six quarts of water to a boil and add salt.

    1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
    3 cloves of garlic (thinly sliced)
    1/2 cup toasted hard bread crumbs
    1 cup roughly chopped walnuts
    1 tablespoon red hot pepper flakes
    In a 14 to 16 inch fry pan, heat the oil over medium heat until smoking.  Add the garlic and cook until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes.  Add half the bread crumbs, walnuts and red pepper flakes and cook until slightly toasted, about 3 to 4 minutes.  Remove from heat and set aside.
  • 3
    1 pound linguine
    Drop the pasta into boiling water and cook according to package instruction until 1 minute short of al dente.  Just before draining the pasta add 1/4 cup of pasta water to the pan with the walnut mixture.

    1/2 cup freshly grated caciocavallo
    Drain the pasta in a colander and pour the pasta into the pan with the walnut mixture.  Place the pan over medium heat and continue to cook the pasta with the walnut mixture until the pasta is lightly dressed with the condiment, about 1 minute.  Add the parsley and grated cheese, stir through, pour into a heated bowl, sprinkle with the remaining breadcrmbs and serve.
