1. Toast walnuts on an oven tray in a preheated 200 ºC oven for three to four minutes, shaking once or twice. Cool. 2. Place walnuts, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic and Parmesan in a food processor and blend until smooth, or pulverise in a mortar. With the motor running, dribble enough olive oil into the mixture to make a creamy sauce or gradually add olive oil, drop by drop, to form a smooth consistency. Pour into a sterilised, screw-top jar and top with a thin layer of olive oil. This can be stored in the fridge for at least two weeks. Renew the layer of oil after each use. Makes 300 ml.
