Begin by bringing a large pot of water to a boil. While it boils, grab a large skillet, and place it over medium-low heat. To the pan, add the raw pine nuts.

Stir the nuts around for 6-7 minutes, or until toasted. Keep a close eye on them, and stir often to make sure they don’t burn.

Transfer the toasted pine nuts to a separate plate and let them cool off to the side.

To the boiling water, add salt, then add the pasta. Let that cook according to the package directions. Drain the cooked pasta into a strainer then run the pasta under cold water.
