Pasta with Anchovies and Walnuts

"Pasta with walnuts is seen in countless forms in the Italian region of Liguria - some creamy, some with tomatoes or other vegetables. But my favorite, and by far the simplest, is this version. It's really no more than pasta with garlic and oil, incorporating two of the region's most distinctive ingredients: anchovies and walnuts." --Mark Bittman
