This is absolutely delicious and a low fat way to make pesto.
2 tsp of pine nuts
1/2 tsp crushed garlic
2 tsp grated parmesan
2 tbs water
1/2 bunch fresh basil leaves
1 tsp olive oil
Roast pine nuts until brown. Place all pesto ingredients into a blender or use a bamix and blend until a paste. (I like mine left a bit chunky).
500g skinless chicken breasts
2 tsp crushed garlic
1 onion diced
2 cups mushrooms sliced
4 tbs no added salt tomato paste
2 tsp salt reduced chicken stock powder
1 275g can evaporated skim milk
Cut chicken into cubes, saute garlic and chicken in cooking spray until browned. Add onion and cook. Toss in mushrooms and cook for 2 minutes. Add tomato paste, stock powder and pesto, mix well. Add evaporated skim milk. Be careful not to boil as the milk can curdle.
Serve mixed through pasta.
