A lovely side dish with the crunch of pine nuts (which I love!). Very quick and simple to make, also.

Couldn't be simpler to make. Just the right proportion of seasonings for me. Delicious.

Nice recipe, but just a little to lemony for our tastes. I've made this twice now, once as is, and the second time I first sauteed a medium onion, then added the garlic when the onion was soft, and cut back on the lemon juice. Used a lot more pine nuts than called for, with us it's not a garnish, it's a food staple!
