1. Heat the oven to the lowest setting. Line a baking pan with a double thickness of paper towels. Place the walnuts in hot water to cover completely. Let stand 15 minutes. Drain thoroughly. Arrange the walnuts in a single layer on the prepared baking pan. Dry in the oven until lightly crisp on the outside and moist but firm on the inside, about 45 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and cool to room temperature. 2. Place the walnuts and grated cheese in the work bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Process until finely chopped. With the motor running pour in the oil in a thin stream. Continue processing until the oil is incorporated and the sauce is very smooth. Season to taste with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Serve the walnut sauce at room temperature. Makes about 1 cup
