  1. 1. Toast the pine nuts by placing them in a dry saute pan and cooking over low heat for about 10 minutes, stirring often (do not take your eyes off of them) until lightly browned. Set aside.

  2. 2. Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the onion and cook over medium-low heat for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender but not browned.
