Method

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.

Add linguine and cook until al dente, 8 to 10 minutes.

Reserve 1/2 cup of the cooking water, then drain linguine and transfer to a large bowl.

Meanwhile, put peas, parsley, basil, lemon juice and capers into a food processor and pulse to make a coarse paste. With the motor running, add oil in a steady stream.

Season with salt and pepper.

Toss hot linguine with reserved 1/2 cup cooking water and pesto. Top with walnuts.
