Directions

Place pine nuts in a small non-stick pan and toast until golden. Meanwhile, prepare penne according to package directions. Drain, cover and keep warm. In a blender combine the garlic, pine nuts, basil, parsley, cheese, lemon zest and juice. Pulse until ground to a fine paste, about 1 minute. With the machine running, slowly drizzle in the olive oil and broth until the desired consistency is reached. Season with salt and pepper. Mix pesto with penne and serve hot. Serve with a side salad.
