Cento Pine Nuts
Cento Pine Nuts, or pignoli, (along with fresh basil) are the essential component to pesto sauce. Pine nuts are a great source of nutrients, including essential minerals, healthy mono-saturated fatty acids, and vitamins. Beyond petso sauces, pine nuts can be used in meat, fish, and vegetable dishes, baked into bread, or thrown into a salad. Thanks to the "heart healthy" mono-saturated fatty acids in pine nuts, they help lower cholesterol.
