  Loosely packed chopped fresh flat-leafed parsley 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Ground black pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Hot red pepper flakes 1⁄4 Teaspoon

Directions

In a small skillet, saute the garlic in the oil over very low heat until the garlic is barely golden but not brown, about 5 minutes.
Stir in the walnuts, parsley, and both kinds of pepper.
The sauce can be prepared ahead and kept at room temperature for 2 hours.
While the pasta is cooking, dip out 1/4 cup of the cooking water and add it to the sauce.
Toss the cooked spaghetti with the sauce, saving a few walnuts for the top.
