Wild Garlic Pesto

On the way to work the other day, I accidentally took a detour through the Trelowarren Estate, which is rather splendid: I tried to pass through quickly, but became entangled in a large patch of wild garlic, and in fighting to free myself, I accidentally tore several full leaves straight out of the ground!

This makes you stink, but I love it:

Take a large handfull of Wild Garlic, hack at it until bored, then mix it with a good glug of olive oil, grated parmesan, salt, pepper, and a pile of toasted, chopped Walnuts.  Dollop it on some penne, mix it together with some more cheese (cheddar/ babybell etc) serve, eat, then go on a hot date.
