This recipe comes from my grandmother, who taught my mother, who in turn taught me. It's great anytime, cold or hot, for just you or to feed a whole house!

Made this for Spring PAC 2010 and I really wondered how this would taste being so simple to prepare...out of this world! I did toast the pine nuts and cut down a little on the olive oil but good. I put some in a alfredo sauce and DH almost licked the platter clean. Thank you for an easy and tasty recipe.
