Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    2 Tbsp pine nuts
    2 cup(s) basil, leaves, fresh
    1/2 cup(s) reduced-sodium chicken broth
    1/4 cup(s) grated Parmesan cheese
    1 Tbsp olive oil
    2 clove(s) garlic clove(s), peeled (medium)
    1/2 tsp table salt

Directions

Place pine nuts in a small skillet and set pan over medium heat. Cook until nuts are golden, shaking pan frequently to prevent burning, about 3 minutes. Transfer nuts to a plate to cool.


In a blender or food processor, combine nuts, basil, broth, cheese, oil, garlic and salt; process until smooth and thick. Yields about 1/4 cup per serving.
