Recipe Details
Microwave without usual cream sauce defects. I just love the light green color and how well it displays over tri color or regular pasta, salmon and grilled chicken.

Cooking Instructions

In a food processor, combine basil and garlic. Begin processing, and pour in olive oil in a thin stream. Process for about 40 seconds, or until mixture begins to emulsify. Add pine nuts and Parmesan, then blend for 1 minute. Heat cream in a saucepan over low heat until simmering. Pour 1/2 of the hot cream into the processor with basil pesto, and pulse for 20 seconds to incorporate. Pour mixture back into cream, and simmer for 5 minutes, or until thickened.

Garnishing Instructions
Not Available.

Serving Instructions
This basil cream sauce is a simple way to dress up your pork chops. Serve with hot rigatoni, warmed focaccia and a tossed green salad.
