  • Place the walnuts, parsley, cheese, garlic, salt, and sugar in a food processor and pulse for a few seconds to combine. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and pulse again.

  • Drizzle in the olive oil while the machine is running just long enough to incorporate the oil, about 20-30 seconds. 

  • Serve immediately or place in a mason jar.   It will last several days chilled. 

  • Use with pasta, or as a spread on bread, toast, or crackers.
