Recipe Ingredients for WW Pesto Sauce

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

Recipe Directions for WW Pesto Sauce

  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.

  3. Pesto is traditionally a basil and pine nut-based sauce that‚??s crammed with olive oil. This version is lightened up by swapping chicken broth for oil. The flavor is fresh and wonderful ‚?? spoon it over meat, fish, poultry and vegetables, or toss it with cooked pasta.
