    DrGaellon's Note:

    With a loaf of crusty bread on hand, this recipe will have dinner on the table in five minutes. When you have so few ingredients, the quality must be impeccable. If you have homemade chicken stock, now is the time to use it. You could use a heaping tablespoon of pre-made pesto, but the pine nuts and Parmesan can be distracting from the subtle flavors of the beans. This simplified pesto couldn't be easier.

    1. 1
      In a small food processor, combine basil and garlic; process until finely chopped. While running, add oil slowly until a smooth puree forms.
    2. 2
      Heat chicken stock and beans in a saucepan over medium-high heat. When it boils, reduce heat to medium-low, add a heaping tablespoon of the pesto (any excess can be frozen), the Parmesan and a few twists of black pepper. Simmer 1 minute to blend flavors. Taste and season with salt if needed.
