non or pas

When does one use 'non' and when does one use "pas" to mean not, for example, in the sentence " Not only do I hate walnuts, but I also hate peanuts".

Bonjour Jean !

The expression to say "not only....but" in French is "non seulement ... mais" : 

Non seulement je déteste les noix, mais je déteste aussi les cacahuètes.

Bonne journée !
