basil 100gr (3 1/2oz)
thyme 30gr (1 oz)
mint 20gr (3/4 oz)
fennel 15gr (1/2oz)
marjoram 15gr (1/2 oz)
½ head of fresh garlic
walnuts 250gr (9 oz)
extra vergin olive oil 500gr (17 oz)
if available some wild asparagus
fresh chili

Chop the herbs and nuts. Slice the garlic so it can be removed later. Mix it with olive oil, the chili and a little salt.
Marinate for about an hour.
Make the pasta with 200gr (7 oz) of flour, 300gr (10 ½ oz) of durum wheat flour, 2 eggs, a bit of water.
Let it rest for about 10 minutes. Roll the dough into stripes quite high (thickness N. 3 in the pasta machine). Let it dry slightly and cut with the special “guitar” machine for pasta.
Boil until it will “al dente” and season with the sauce and some Parmesan Cheese.
