Walnut Raisin Linguine Pasta Recipe
- 2 cups cubed bread
- 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 4 cloves garlic, peeled
- salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
- 12 oz (360 g) dried linguine pasta
- 1/2 cup golden raisins
- 1/2 cup dark raisins
- 1/2 cup walnuts
- 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat the oven to 350 F (177 C). Place the bread on a baking sheet and toast, shaking the pan once or twice during cooking, until golden, about 10 min. Set aside.
Heat the cup of oil in a large heavy pot over low heat. Add the whole garlic cloves and cook until they begin to color, about 10 min. Remove from the heat and discard the garlic cloves. Set the pot with oil aside.
Just before serving, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil and the pasta and cook until just tender. Rinse under hot water, drain well, and place in a large serving bowl.
While the pasta is cooking, add the minced garlic, raisins, pine nuts, and red pepper flakes to the reserved oil and place the pot over low heat. Cook until the garlic just begins to brown (8-10 min.) Do not let it burn. Add the oil mixture to the hot pasta along with the croutons and parsley. Toss well with a large spoon and fork. Season well with salt and pepper
Serve immediately with a bowl of freshly grated Parmesan.
