1/2 cup/125 ml walnuts

2 cloves garlic

1/2 cup/125 ml freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

Salt

Directions

  1. Put the parsley, walnuts and garlic on a cutting board. With a mezzaluna or sharp knife, finely chop the ingredients. Put the chopped ingredients in a jar and add the Parmigiano cheese, salt, to taste and 1/2 cup olive oil and mix all the ingredients well. Top up with the remaining extra-virgin olive oil.
