You can toast the pine nuts on a rimmed baking sheet in the oven or in a skillet on the stovetop — just watch them carefully because they burn easily.
This was quite tasty and will definitely make again. After reading the negative reviews I think the key here is to make sure to use FRESH breadcrumbs. Do not use the already dried breadcrumbs you buy in the store in a can. I measured 2 1/2 cups prior to crisping in the pan. I also added extra tomato mostly because I had it on hand. However, I did add a handful of kalamata olives which worked well with the other ingredients.
Love this recipe. I had a friend try it and complain of too many breadcrumbs as well, but I learned what she had done is use 2 1/2 cups of finished (crisped) breadcrumbs. I measured 2 1/2 fresh breadcrumbs (before crisping) and it works well. Agree with the comments on more tomatoes - I usually double to triple the amount.
have to agree with jabnbnj, too dry, too many bread crumbs, too few tomatoes, maybe needs something sharp like vinegar or olives.
Couldn't wait to taste the flavors together and then couldn't wait to get rid of the dish....WAY too many breadcrubms and extremely dry. Tripling the amount of cherry tomatoes may have helped with the dryness.
