Add pepper, 10 grams of hazelnuts (better if roughly chopped), a few leaves of marjoram, and mix.
Blend everything with an immersion blender until you get a smooth and velvety cream. Add more salt and pepper and a tablespoon of the cooking water if necessary.
Drain the White Corn Fusilli, transfer them to a pan and stir in the hazelnut oil.
