Why I Love This Recipe

Basil and pine nuts really have a way of coming together in this recipe.

find my cookbook "Saucy Dressings" for more saucy recipes.


Ingredients You'll Need

1/2 cup pine nuts
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tsp lemon juice
1 Tsp dried onion flakes
1/2 Tsp dried garlic flakes
or 1 clove of fresh garlic


Directions

Blend on all ingredients in your high speed blender until smooth.

Evenly coat your choice of noodles - serve immediately.

Recipe - Options
Use Kale in place of basil, or mix it up with chard, kale and basil.
Use Walnuts in place of pine nuts, or mix a bit of each.
Add sun dried tomatoes or black olives.

If you made more than you will use at once. Freeze in ice cube trays, then pop into a plastic bag or container and store in your freezer.
