    1. 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. 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.

    4. 4
      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.

      I haven't made this yet, but at 5 points per serving, unless this is all I'm eating, I won't be making it anytime soon. Pairing it with whole wheat pasta or Ronzoni Smart Taste pasta would still be very high in points .

      5 POINTS - according to the WeightWatchers points finder this is 5 points per serving. This is also according to the nutrition facts the poster has listed to the left.

      Delicious! I had enough garlic in mine, but my cloves were pretty big. The taste is great and I will definitely be making this again. It is also a lot cheaper than buying it at the store. I'll be using it in my No-Guilt Creamy Salmon and Pasta. Made for PAC Spring 2009. Thanks !
