I love when I have a recipe starred, and I happen to have all the ingredients on hand!  Like when do I ever have toasted almonds, ditalini, AND fresh thyme in my pantry/refridgerator?  Anyways, this was sooo delicious – will definitely be making this again!! 🙂


1/3 cup sliced almonds


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spread the almonds on a rimmed baking sheet and bake, tossing occasionally, until golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes.


Meanwhile, bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook as the label directs, then drain and rinse under cold water. Transfer to a serving bowl and toss with the olive oil, parmesan, lemon juice, shallot, thyme, 1 teaspoon salt and about half of the almonds. Season with salt and pepper. Top with the remaining almonds and the red pepper flakes.
