Spaghetti in Tomato sauce and Walnuts 

 I have already posted spaghetti in tomato sauce but this time I had made some changes and made this pasta dish with nuts. Sometimes I get bored eating the same dish, so thought of giving slight twist to this simple spaghetti dish. I have used chopped walnuts in the sauce and it turned out awesome, so thought of posting this recipe here.

  5. I use to eat walnuts on their own or within desserts. But lately I’ve been using them as garnishes and scattering them on salads. I love the idea of using them in the sauce!
