Our slimmed-down version of this Italian classic relies on chicken broth — and just a touch of olive oil — for texture.

Ingredients

pine nuts

2 Tbsp

basil

2 cup(s), leaves, fresh

reduced-sodium chicken broth

½ cup(s)

grated Parmesan cheese

¼ cup(s)

olive oil

1 Tbsp

garlic clove(s)

2 medium clove(s), peeled

table salt

½ tsp

Instructions

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
