Angel Hair with Walnuts

This dish is great, everyone liked it, except my two boys, four out of six people isn't too bad! (If you have been reading my blog you know there are 5 people in my family but we always have someone from the neighborhood eat dinner with us.)  Just so you know what to expect be prepared that this has a very earthy/nutty flavor, if you aren't in to that then this is not the pasta for you.  I love the extra crunch that the pecans gave it for some reason it makes me feel super sophisticated.  ;-)

8 ounces angel hair pasta (uncooked)
1-1/2 to 2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (I used pecans)
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
1/2 cup shredded Romano cheese

Cook pasta according to package directions. 
Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute garlic in oil until tender. 
Stir in the walnuts, pepper flakes and salt. 
Cook for 2-3 minutes or until walnuts are toasted. 
Remove from the heat; stir in parsley. 
Drain pasta; add to skillet. 
Add cheese; toss to coat.
