This is a great recipe to pair with a green salad and your favorite pasta dish, like Pumpkin Walnut Ravioli or Easy Walnut Fettuccine Alfredo. Kids can help make the garlic toasts while mom or dad makes the pasta.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup chopped California walnuts
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil or butter
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 loaf French bread (1 pound loaf, cut into 12 slices)

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 450 F
  2. Place walnuts, Parmesan, olive oil or butter and garlic powder in a medium bowl. Mix with a wooden spoon until completely combined.
  3. Slice bread into ¾-inch thick slices. Place bread slices on baking sheet.
  4. Spread about 2-3 teaspoons walnut-parmesan mixture on bread slices.
  5. Put in oven and bake about 5 minutes. Watch carefully, checking after the first 4 minutes. Remove from oven when walnut topping is bubbly and lightly browned.
  • TIPS
  • For easy clean-up, bake toasts on aluminum foil lined baking sheet.
  • Refrigerate any leftover walnut-parmesan mix. Use for Walnut Pasta Toss (see recipe below).
  • Walnut Pasta Toss: Cook favorite pasta in boiling water according to package directions. Two minutes before the pasta is done, add ½ cup frozen peas (or other favorite vegetable) for each serving. Drain. Stir 1-2 tablespoons of walnut-parmesan mix into hot pasta.
