EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Add more Mediterranean flair by tossing in some sliced kalamata olives and a can of Progresso® cannellini beans, drained.

Basil sprigs and lemon slices make a pretty garnish for this pasta salad.

Toast the pine nuts to bring out their flavor. Sprinkle nuts in ungreased heavy skillet. Cook over medium heat about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until nuts begin to brown, then stirring constantly until golden brown.
