Ingredients

  • 1 batch Baked Tofu Feta prep the day before (see notes)
  • 1 c walnuts
  • 1/4 c olive oil
  • 1/2 c parsley
  • 1 pound angel hair pasta or any other type, use gluten free if needed!

Instructions

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Prepare the pasta according to package directions. Drain pasta and reserve 1 cup of pasta water.
  • In the meantime, place walnuts in a small skillet and toast over medium heat until slightly fragrant. Remove from heat.
  • Add tofu feta, walnuts, and parsley into your food processor.
  • Pulse a few times, being careful not to break down the tofu into a creamy sauce (you want it to remain crumbly). Add olive oil and pulse 1 or 2 more times to incorporate.
  • Add the walnut/tofu pesto to the cooked pasta. Stir to distribute thoroughly—this may take a minute. Add some pasta water, a drizzle at a time, if needed.
  • Serve.
