Diet Secrets of The Bible






Low Fat Pesto


  • 1 cup well-packed fresh basil leaves
  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon pine nuts
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


    Toast pine nuts by spreading them on a baking sheet and baking them for 3-5 minutes in the oven at 350°. Set aside.

    Rinse and drain the basil leaves. In a blender or food processor, combine the basil, tomatoes, garlic, pine nuts, and salt and purée until smooth. Make sure you get all of the ingredients from the side of the processor into the blend.

    This recipe will serve approximately four helpings of pasta. If youíre not serving a family it will last in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. If youíre a single guy there isnít a better thing you can say to a date than "Hey would you like to come over for dinner, Iíve made some low fat pesto that Iím anxious for you to try."
