Recipe Time: Pasta with Walnut Pesto

While I was browsing around http://tastykitchen.com/recipes/main-courses/pasta-with-walnut-pesto/ looking for some new recipes, I came across this recipe for pasta with a walnut pesto. I love walnuts and pasta and pesto! Plus, the directions were so simple. I pinned it to my recipe board on pinterest and made it a couple days later. It was so, so good! Even Hudson liked it!

1 pound Spaghetti
