Recipe Ingredients for Penne with Gruyere, Walnuts and Sage

1 pound whole wheat penne
1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
5 cloves garlic, sliced
3/4 cup sliced fresh sage leaves
1/2 pound gruyere, diced
1 Freshly ground black pepper

Recipe Directions for Penne with Gruyere, Walnuts and Sage

  1. Cook penne in boiling water until al dente, 12 to 15 minutes. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking water separately. Return pasta to the pot.

  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until it begins to brown around the edges, about 4 minutes.

  3. Toss penne with garlic and oil mixture, walnuts and sage. Place pot over medium-low heat and stir in Gruyère and reserved cooking water. Cook, stirring, until the cheese is melted and you have a creamy sauce, 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer pasta to a bowl or platter and grind a generous amount of black pepper over the top.
