Chopped walnuts often work well in such pasta dishes, as do chopped or slivered almonds.

I'd echo the walnuts.

Pine nuts and raisins are a classic combination, bur if you can't use pine nuts, almonds are an alternative. I might be tempted to try pistachios.

You can leave them out or try chopped walnuts. However I would use the walnuts sparingly.
This dish is so good that it will not suffer without the pine nuts.
