Pine nuts, also known as pignolias, are the edible seeds of pine trees. There are only a small number of pine tree species that produce the larger seeds that are worth harvesting. When toasting, be careful since small nuts heat up more quickly than the large nuts, making them burn more easily.
Substitute your favorite chopped PLANTERS Nuts for the pine nuts.
Mix 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh basil with the bread crumb mixture before using as directed.
