honestly I dont even know what almond meal is  :P
But just using a little over 3 tablespoons almond halves worked great!
Honestly one of my new favorite recipes... quick and easy...

Holy moses I'm glad I found this recipe... I made some huge changes the first and only time I've made it but smokes alive this is great.... my picture is above and is the one on a white plate over spaghetti...
I also added to the recipe. More black pepper, red pepper flakes (for heat) cayenne powder, onion powder (just a dash) handful of spinach, also instead of almond meal I just put in crushed almonds... basically full almonds, into the processor. Then added oregano to the processor as well.... oh and the basil I put in was part fresh, part dried... and I put that into the processor as well instead of after....
