  1. In a large pot of salted water, cook pasta until al dente, per package instructions. Drain pasta and return to pot.
  2. Meanwhile, in a food processor, puree the California walnuts until a walnut butter forms, about 1 minute. Add ½ cup water, the soy sauce, lime juice, sesame oil, maple syrup, sriracha, ginger, garlic, and red pepper flakes, and puree until well combined.
  3. Place the pot of cooked pasta over medium-high heat and add the walnut sauce and 1 cup of water. Cook stirring, until sauce coats noodles and is warmed. Remove from the heat and stir in the carrots, cucumber, green onions, and cilantro. Season with salt and pepper. Serve warm garnished with more walnuts, green onions, cilantro, and pepper flakes.
