 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      cloves        garlic -- peeled
      1/4  cup           olive oil
    1      cup           walnuts -- finely chopped
                         coarse salt to taste
    1      pound         vermicelli or spaghetti
    2      tablespoons   chopped fresh parsley or basil
                         freshly ground pepper -- to taste
      1/4  cup           freshly grated perocino romano
 In a large skillet over medium low heat, cook the garlic in olive oil
 until golden. Remove garlic from the pan. Add the walnuts and cook,
 stirring until lightly toasted, about 5 minutes.
 Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add salt and the
 pasta. Cook, stirring frequently, until the vermicelli is al dente,
 tender yet firm to the bite.
 Drain the vermicelli, reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking water. In a
 large serving bowl, toss the vermicelli with the nuts and just enough
 cooking water to keep it moist. Add the parsley, if using, and
 sprinkle generously with pepper.
 Add cheese and toss again. Serve immediately.
