1/2 cup or more of walnuts
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice or mild vinegar (cider or brown rice)
1 teaspoon salt

Blend all in food processor fitted with metal blades. Add some water as necessary to make a creamy consistency. Toss with hot, freshly cooked pasta. Serve with Marinated Tomatoes.
