  1. Blitz the roasted red pepper with the olive oil, walnuts and garlic in a food processor, season well and set aside.

  2. Bring a pan of salted water to the boil, add the pasta and cook for 1 min less than the pack instructions and drain, reserving a ladleful of cooking water. Tip the pasta back into the pan, along with the reserved cooking water and red pepper sauce, and return to the heat to warm through. Tip the pasta into a bowl and top with the parmesan and some chopped toasted walnuts. Season and serve.

that's what i thought as soon as i saw how high the calorie count was. I've just found a similar recipe without the parmesan but with 2 tbsp of cream and some capers and it was only 250 calories.

What would a good alternative to the walnuts be as I am allergic?

Thanks for your question, you could swap with another nut such as (unsalted) cashews. Take a look at the following alternative recipe: https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipe/roasted-red-pepper-parsley-pesto-penne
