The original recipe came in the packet of Organics Basil I got today. I cooked it up and it was so awesome that I had to save it with a few changes. Roasted Pine Nuts tossed with Linguini and fresh Basil and Spinach. Red Pepper flakes give it a kick balanced out by the nutty flavor of the pine nuts !
