Our slimmed-down version of this Italian classic relies on chicken broth (and just a little olive oil) for texture. Spoon it over meat, fish, poultry and vegetables, or toss it with cooked pasta.
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 medium garlic clove(s), peeled
1/2 tsp table salt
  • 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.
