Expert Tips

Some grocery stores carry toasted pine nuts. If you can’t find them, toast your own by sprinkling the pine nuts in an ungreased heavy skillet. Cook over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until nuts begin to brown, then stirring constantly until nuts are light brown.

Crumbled chèvre (goat) cheese can be substituted for the Parmesan.
