Fusilli with walnut sauce & radicchio

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
12.00 ounce Dry fusilli
8.00 ounce Walnuts; lightly toasted
2.00 tablespoon Dry bread crumbs
1.00 \N Garlic clove; minced
¼ cup Olive oil
½ cup Ricotta cheese
1.00 cup Chicken broth or water
\N \N Salt; to taste
\N \N Freshly-ground black pepper; to taste
8.00 ounce Radicchio; cut into chiffonade
2.00 tablespoon Olive oil
½ cup Grated Parmesan or Grana Padano cheese

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add the fusilli and cook until tender but still firm to the bite. In a food processor combine walnuts with bread crumbs, garlic, oil and puree until smooth. Add ricotta cheese and broth and puree again to create a fairly smooth sauce. If sauce seems thick, add some water. Season to taste with salt and pepper and set aside. In a skillet saute radicchio in olive oil until just wilted. Drain the pasta and toss with walnut sauce and radicchio with oil from skillet. Toss to combine and garnish with grated Parmesan. This recipe yields 4 servings.
