"I adapted this recipe by substituting fresh lemon juice for olive oil—cutting the fat, but not the flavor," says Cynthia Nardi from Uhrichsville, Ohio. "
- 4 ounces Romano cheese, cut into 1-inch pieces
- 6 garlic cloves
- 2-2/3 cups loosely packed fresh basil
- 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- Hot cooked spaghetti
- In a food processor, combine Romano cheese and garlic; cover and process for 30 seconds. Add the basil, nuts, salt and pepper; cover and process until combined, about 15 seconds. While processing, add the lemon juice; process about 15 seconds longer or until combined. Toss the spaghetti. Yield: 5 servings.
