    Hi – I don’t understand this recipe. It says pine nuts in the heading but there is nothing in the ingredient list or in the recipe instructions?

        How weird Guy, checked again and not on my page, in ingredients or method. This is on an iPad so I’ll look on my mac tomorrow. I just guessed anyway and used them instead of the almonds listed, and I’m a little heavy on spices – it was spectacular!! Such a tasty meal, thank you 🙂
